Has anyone tried the new drugs Cimzia or Tysabri?  How have you done?

There have been some posts about Cimzia in the last couple days...if you'll look back for them, they have a lot on Cimzia.  I was on a clinical trial for it for about a year. 

Crohn's Disease, Acid Reflux/Gastritis, Hypothyroidism, Endometriosis, Arthritis, Depression/Anxiety.  Too many meds to list them all.  =)

If I were to have had both to choose from, I would have started with Cimzia. That's just me. Doesn't come with black box warning, despite all the regular TNF alpha warnings. (cimzia was approved a couple months after I started Tysabri.)

Good luck!
