Its been awhile since I was here. Hope everyone is doing ok, but thi is the worst time of year for most of us. Spring will be our next big flare times after we get over this hump. My gi calls it a seasonal disease because his cd patients are always their wosrt these two times a year.
I going to be starting Cimzia pretty soon. I am excited and scared at the same time. I am trying not to let my hopes get built up too much. I back on Remicade and have been since March for an abdominal fistula that seems to be healed.
Has anyone here tried the Cimzia yet. I read about some trials and it really sounded promising. I can get it for $35 a month on script card. Right now the hospital is billing my ins over $11,000 every 4 weeks and I think thats price gouging. The Remicade is really making me sick this time around, running a fairly high fever and feel like I have the flu. The fever is new and my gi is really concerned, to the point he suggested Cimzia, although I do not tolerate meds well at all he feels its worth a try and so do I.
Anyone every try it? Please post & let me know. Thanks all. Susie
