I had that choice, but doctor suggested humira first. He said if it didn't work he was more than willing to send to me some other doctors for a few more opinions and to start the cimzia.
Humira has been working well for me, but everyone is different. Maybe look into costs, insurance coverage, side effects, etc.
I've heard of people doing well on either one.
Best of luck in your decision!
