I have been maintenancing on Cimzia for 3 months, and felt great, but when it gets to a day to 2 days within the next dose I feel  distended. Cimzia works very timely and when the new dose is incorporated it takes at least 24 hours before it has taking effect. Has anybody experience this phenomena of Cimzia?

Hi, just started Cimzia 3 weeks ago along with 6MP and so far so good. I haven't noticed the side effects that you are talking about but as I said I only just began so I will be aware for them. I have been through Remicade and Humira, both of which worked for a time and then stopped so I really hope that Cimzia is the right biologic for me. It has been so long and I have been so discouraged but every day that doesn't bring 20 trips to the bathroom is a better day for me and the Cimzia seems to be helping with that. The 6MP, although I take it at night, will sometimes make me sick to my stomach during to morning and now my doctor has told me that I have a "slight anemia going on." I just need to keep on going in for the weekly blood tests but all over, I'll take it because I am doing better.
