Feeling weird

I took my first loading dose of Cimzia last night. The injections didn't bother me - an old hand at it now - but I do feel sort of weird. I can't explain it. I was told I'd feel really nauseous and I do sort of but it's more that I'm feeling really light-headed and just can't be bothered to do much of anything. I can't decide if it's a reaction to the drug or not.

When I started Enbrel I didn't feel anything strange at all, Humira just didn't seem to work but this is odd. Any ideas anyone?

  • h hi i have just started, taking that , been 3 days now, got a very dry mouth, and feel sick, and head feels light,

  • I'm the same. It must be the loading dose. Hopefully once we're on the normal dose it'll be ok.

  • Hi Bubs how are you feeling today?

    I am feeling really tired as yesterday I must of over done it as I felt energised and could not rest, not matter how much I tried!

    Trying to take it easy today, I managed about 50 min nap earlier this afternoon. Going of to bed again to see if I can rest again!

    Hope you are well,
