I have been on Cimzia for a couple years and never had problems with blood pressure, maybe you should just monitor it more as everyone can get different side effects. Good Luck!

I've been on Cimzia for 2 years now.  But also savella for fibromyalgia.  I've recently experienced HBP and had to go to the ER to reduce it.  I'm now on BP meds and continuing to monitor.  Docs said if Cimzia and Savella work for me, then i jus have to take BP meds.  Not really a problem for me. 
Current meds: Cimzia since 09/03/2010
Tried: Remicade, prednisone, sulfasalzine, lialda, antibiotics, imuran
