I am writing a follow up review for this medication, I have had 3 injections of cimzia, and was feeling great, was able to come off methotrexate and then i was hospitalized for inflammation of my intestines. Dr. doesnt think it was related to cimzia but wanted to share this in case anyone else has a similar experience. Doing fine now and still on cimzia.

I tried DMARS and NSAIDs for awhile but kept having to use prednisone. I took a few months of this drug, but its finally working. My fatigue from the RA is almost completely gone. I do feel like a bus hit me the day after injections but its worth it. There is hardly no pain with the shots and very easy to give. No side effects so far

I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis for 9 years. I have been on many drugs that my system over time has made ineffective. This will be my 3rd month on Cimzia. I have seen good control of the RA, but the shots are extremely painful, very burning. I am used to pain, but this is terrible. I am wondering if the mg strength of the dosage plays a role and if the preservative used in the medication is also ... Show Full Comment

I have had rheumatoid arthritis since i was a child and i am 27 years old, i had an allergic reaction to humira and enbrel so i was nervous about the cimzia. i have had 2 injections and so far so good. i am currently trying to ween myself off of methotrexate so that i can become pregnant in the next year, so hopefully the cimzia will work. i will keep posting my progress.
