I didn't respond to remicade or humira and i decided to go ahead and try cimzia when you dont feel good you will try anything.My gi doc prescribed cimzia with 6-mp until i got the loading dose in. He was worried since I didn't respond to the other two chances were i wouldn't to cimzia either. He said doing 6-mp also will boost the response and what do you know......Cimzia has been the only drug to get and keep me at the closet point to remission I have ever been. I have been taken cimzia for a year and a half and just had my colonoscopy the 23rd and he said i still had a few erosions in those areas but nothing like i used to.It has been my wonder drug. Cimzia offers the cimplicity program will they send you a prescription card for discounts so between that and my insurance I pay nothing for my monthly dose of cimzia and it has been my best time dealing with this disease.
That's great news! We never know whether something will work unless you give it a shot.
Funny how Asacol can cause worsening of symptoms in some while Pentasa does a fantastic job even though both are in the same category of mesalamines.
So the same thing applies for Remicade, Humira and Cimzia.
