I just started Cimzia today, myself, but so far so good! LOL. From everything that I've read, the Cimzia could start to work as early as 2 weeks into the treatment, but with definite improvement by six weeks in.
I'm not good with all this "link"/internet nonsense, but there is a posting on the first page of this crohn's forum for "starting a new med?"... there are links to past discussions about Cimzia there.
