I have had 3 injections so far with Cimzia. Now I seem to have a mild sore throat the night after the injection. I also experience alot of fatigue for about 2 days after the injection so I get mine on a Thurs. The tiredness usually kicks in on Sat and Sun. I failed Remicade after about a yr and with Humira I had shingles and had to stop it. I was having luck with Humira. So far I really haven't noticed a positive effect from the Cimzia yet. I had my initial injection then week 2 and week 4 now i go monthly. I am praying that it will start to work. I am afraid that the other TNF drugs have developed a resistance decreasing the effect of this med. I hope your response is good. The shots are not bad. I thought that they would hurt more but it really isn't bad. The nurse comes to my house, free of charge from the Cimzia company-for all Cimzia patients, to administer and mix up the injections. You will also receive the drug free for a year from the company itself. Good luck.
