i recieve my cimzia every two weeks. my wife injects me. it helps with the 3 week flare up. i have been on cimzia since it was trialed, 3.5 years now. remicade, humira, 6mp, prednisone, flagyl and the list goes on and on, none of them put my disease into remision like cimzia. every medication has its side efects and issues but injecting cimzia every other week, and 4000mg of pentasa, tramadol, and omperozole i am functioning a whole lot better. i still have issues with my joints, all shoulders, knees, wrists, fingers and especially my lower back. three major surgerys, all fusions on lower spine. athritis through out my body. if any one knows a way to keep the joint and back pain at bay, let me know. since 2004 i have been struggling to keep my intestines until cimzia..thank you scientists..i know the day may come where they tell me i have cancer but im not going to worry about it until than, i still wouldnt have change a thing. live life to its fullest until i cant any more.
