For those who has been on cimiza for a few is it working???? And if so when did it start???? I've had my second dose and I can't tell any difference yet, wondering if it takes awhile. I was on humira and I started to get relief soon after I started. Had to stop because I started to have problems with my legs, and blood pressure.

Ne Ne, I noticed the Cimzia helping within a week of getting the first injection.  On the other hand, when I switched to Humira, it took a few months for me to notice and I can't always tell that I've had an injection.  I could always tell on the Cimzia...one week of feeling great and another week of feeling bad (I was getting it every 2 weeks on a clinical trial and it would wear off after about a week).

I just started Cimzia Tuesday 2/10 and have not noticed anything yet either. Hoping it kicks in after the second dose or at least at some point. :-(

I am wondering - for those who have tried and had success or failure with Cimzia - at what point can a person tell if they are failing or feeling Cimzia? Dose #2 for me is tomorrow. I am going downhill right now, so definitely NOT noticing the first dose at all.

Thanks.
