I was on it last year and can only tell you how it worked for me. Like stated above, everyone is different and
I know people here have great success with it. It worked great for me Crohn's wise, but the side effects I
had were not good. It made me very sick. I would take mine on Friday night before bed as well and I was
pretty much sick and not feeling well the whole weekend. This never got better for me. I have a 3 year old
son so as you know I need to be functionable at all times. lol I came off it last November and did pretty
good off anything for a few months. I just started on Cimzia and so far I really like it. I feel great Crohn's wise
and I don't have any horrible side effects that keep me down for a period of days. The only thing I am noticing
is about a week after injection I become super moody which in turn causes the horns to come out and I'm
not so nice to the ones around me. But it only lasts about a day or two.
