I was on remicade for 6+ years until it started to lose effectiveness. I switched to Humira and it works pretty well, but it has caused me to break out in psoriasis (this is my assumption, haven't told my GI yet). The Humira is keeping CD and arthritis fairly stable, but I don't want psoriasis if I can help it. What do I go on to next? Cimzia? Orencia? Has anyone gone this route yet?

My understanding is Cimzia works very closely to Humira so if its still working you should try it but talk to your doc about psoriasis. Good luck
