It's back to the drawing board for me again. Came off Orencia as it didn't work and made me feel ill. Rheumy put me back on Cimzia but I came out in hives all over my body after the 1st loading dose. He thinks I probably reacted to it when I took it the first time. I did have rosacea and hot flushes which I put down to menopause but looking back these did stop when I came off Cimzia.
I don't see Rheumy until May but I'm o managing to stave off a flare with only 5mg prednisolone. I know the half life for Cimzia is approx 14 days so it's definitely out of my system. I'll increase prednisolone if need to but I really don't want to as I've been on it for 4 years with no break. I'm going to try Golden Paste capsules to see if they help. Has anyone tried them?
