    I have had RA for 5 years (diagnosed); had allergic reactions to Remicade, but had pretty great success with Humira until about two months ago, then was switched to Enbrel and experienced no relief.

    I recently completed my 1st treatment of Cimzia (2 shots 1, 2 & 4 week). I feel good. I do have brief morning stiffness of my hands in the morning but that's it. By the time I'm dressed and leaving for work I'm great. I have not experienced any swelling or joint pain since starting this drug. I have noticed small rashes on my arms and legs.

    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
