So the day has finally come!, I've been waiting and
Waiting to get started on cimzia. It's honestly a little surreal I didn't expect to be feeling the way that I do about it..,
I've done all the research and such for the past year when my doc first introduced the idea of taking it. So I've somewhat known what to expect.., buut it just feels more 'heavy' then I thought it would..., just in the sence that now it is very real and more intense than I thought it would be. At the same time I do feel as though it is the start of getting my life back!!

Good job, Crohnic-Style! Best wishes for a great response! Personally, if I were new to TNFs, but knew what I know, I'd chose Cimzia without question. It's easy, doesn't sting like Humira and has that pegylated formula which is supposed to help it last in the body. Good luck!

I have been on Cimzia for about 1YR.  I feel the Remicade works better for my chrons and joint pain.   I recently added Imuran 150MG to see if works any better.  I take 400MG each month of Cimzia.
