    I've had Crohn's for 6 yrs and taking drug for 6 yrs plus either Remicade, Humira and now Cimzia. Just increased from 150mg daily to 175mg daily. Side effect of increase seems to be tiredness, but better than Entocort or Prednisone.

    Comment:
    Side effects of muscle pain/weakness, itching and stomach pain/cramping have increased. Been on this for 3 months, bloodwork shows it is working, but my body does not. Nausea and increased diarrhea do not help. Seems I am taking this medication to satisfy my dr., but I don't see any noticeable results.
