kjl, I noticed it working within a few weeks, but I was getting bi-weekly injections on a clinical trial, compared to monthly injections that I believe most people get now that it's approved.
tiamarie, I'm not sure on what basis this dr is rating the drugs, but everyone reacts differently, so I would be hesitant to put too much faith in his ratings. My rheumy said that her arthritis patients overall have seen the most results on Remicade, but it didn't work for many of us, so you gotta go with what works for you.
flutterby, I think it's interesting that your doctor mentioned the one year rule. I've always noticed that I have to switch meds after about a year (started with acid reflux meds) and after a year on a clinical trial for Cimzia, it seemed to not work as well anymore either. Now I have switched to Humira but have not been happy with the results.
Crohn's Disease, Acid Reflux/Gastritis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Endometriosis, Arthritis, Depression/Anxiety. Too many meds to list them all. =)
