New Drug worries. Any advice please πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

I am due to be starting Certoliizumab ( Cimzia ) soon as infliximab is no longer effective for me. I am dreading starting something new after been on Infliximab for over 6 years. I was wondering what to expect from this drug good & bad please. I know we are not all the same but any information will be appreciated. I have been flaring for over 2 years one thing or another so fingers crossed this may be my new wonder drug πŸ˜€πŸ˜€. New year. .new things to look forward to hopefully. Hoping everyone is coping well with the stresses of Christmas. Thankyou in advance. Happy & keep well at Christmas everyone πŸŽ…πŸŽ…πŸŽ…

  • Hello

    I recently switched to Cimzia and it is going well. I’m still doing the loading doses (2 injections every 2 weeks) and I’ve only had very mild side effects. I’m hoping it will continue to work once I drop down to the maintenance dose.

    Good luck.

  • Good luck with the new meds. You can ask your consultant or GP for more information on the effectiveness and side affects etc. Best wishes to you.
