I've been on Cimzia since July (except for brief lapse right now fromPG treatment). I am due to have it Thursday, and I think I've finally found a combination that works for me. My GI and I have worked together and done trial and error (with journal help). I get the Cimzia every 4 weeks and take Methotrexate 6 pills one day a week. The final component is a proton pump inhibitor Omeprazole. It helps keep the extra stomach acid from being produced and flooding the bowel causing d. For the first time in 10 tears I am actually having formed stool! I never thought I'd grow up to be excited by a terd!(ha,ha)!! I hope you continue to due well. Thanks for your support on PG thread!!
