    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.

    I was on Enbrel for a year and Remicade for a year (but due to the ridiculous cost of Remicade...I chose to change.) I am now on Cimzia and have only received one injection and due for another in 2 days. My body is ready for some kind of treatment because the Remicade is gone and I am feeling the RA hitting a level I haven't experienced in a while. I have tried to research this drug on the ...

    I have only taken the first dose of the medication but had some scary side effects. About four hours after injecting Cimzia I was awoken by severe dizziness, numbness of my tongue, tingling in my arms, hands, and legs, shortness of breath, swelling of my lips...I have never felt like this before. I had been on Enbrel for 5 years and I have not had any allergies to medication before. I have had a ... Show Full Comment
