I' ve just had my first maintenance dose 3 days ago, prior to that my loading phase was accompanied with prednisone.
I had flares, I was frustrated, until I realized it was my fistulas that was giving me problems, so I asked my Dr to prescribe
me flagyl, then I developed kidney stones and I stopped my flagyl. Meanwhile I kept having flares. All this taken place while
loading up on cimzia. Now the cimzia(1 st maintenace dose) seems to be working, what makes me say this..well I feel well
and I' am tapering down on prednisone...I don't think I'm out of the woods yet, but it is still too early and I am on still on pred-
nisone. I am witnessing some side effects like tiredness. Like I am coming down with a cold or something, and my legs are
weak, risk to infections...hope this helps, regards Ben.
