I hope your roommate learns to keep her hands off other peoples things. I would ban her from any access to your fridge. If she wants to keep her soda cold, she should buy her own fridge. I am shocked that people have no respect for other peoples things.

I am so glad that your Cimzia will be replaced.

Hi I'm a new to this site and also just took my first Cimzia injection. I previously was on Humira but failed after a short amount of time. Anyone have any pros or cons? How fast does it work?I am desperate for relief of any kind

Hey Kim! I started Cimzia after Enbrel and Humira both stopped working for me. The drug company gave me the first three months free since it wasn't approved for AS to see how it worked for me. I LOVE it! I find that doing a shot every other week is perfect. The injections are much less painful than Enbrel and Humira. So far I haven't been too immunosuppressed or had any illness while on it. I have pretty severe disease so I still have some enthesitis, but I'm finding that Cimzia works really well for me. I definitely felt improvement in a month.

It is all individual, of course. But I hope it works this well for you! I always let mine sit out for about 30 minutes before injecting, which makes it much less painful.
