Comment:
Have only taken first set of shots. These ergonomic syringes are a joke. Very hard to handle and kept fumbling in order to get injection done correctly. Needle can be seen without glasses and across the room!! Hurt like heck. Went to sleep and woke up (what I can imagine from movies I have seen) like a tweaker on a bad fix. Took about 4 hours to calm down just to be in bed with a semi-lupus flare ... Show Full Comment

The shots are huge, very expensive and difficult to give yourself. In six weeks I did not have any relief at all. Save your time and money. I am still trying to recover.

Comment:
I was diagnosed with RA in May 2007. I started on methotrexate and plaqunil. I started taking Cimzia in Dec. 2009. In April 2010 the plaqunil was stopped and in Jan. 2012 the methotrexate was stopped. I have been on Cimzia only since Jan. 2012 and I have not had any joint pain or swelling and very minimal joint damage.
