I took this a few years ago for my Crohn's. My doctor was hesitant to put me on it because it takes about 3 months before you feel any effects from the drug. I didn't have any weird side effects. It helped maintain my Crohn's for awhile, but my doctor switched me to Remicade when I began to develop fistulas (from the Crohn's).
I took it again last June and stayed on it for a few months, but went off all meds when hubby and I were trying to get pregnant. After 4 months of being off meds, I had to take Cimzia because my Crohn's had gotton worse and I couldn't wait three months for meds to kick in.
Both times I never noticed any side effects, and I still have a lot of hair. :)
You could always try it, and if you notice unusual or unpleasant side effects, you can stop. I know different meds have different effects on different people.
Hope this helps in some way. Good luck.
