I have the anemia under control with iron supplements and symptom free of Crohn's, but due to the active inflammation my GI has decided the best course of treatment is to use Cimzia to bring the inflammation under control.
I've not been on an anti-inflammatory, anti-TNF, steroid, or other drug regimen since 2001. I've read the UCB website for Cimzia, drug interaction guides, and am trying to continue my research. What I haven't found are any first hand experiences with the drug.
Has anyone on this board used Cimzia? Success? Side-effects (short term and long term)?
Used Cimzia and have used Humira or Remicade? I'm asking because my GI's initial direction was to prescribe Humira but due to insurance reasons has changed to Cimzia.
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
