Cimzia Side Effects: How to get over a cold?

I've been on Cimzia since September and I can't believe how well it has treated my Crohns symptoms.

The only problem I've had with it is since it suppresses the immune system getting sick is a lot easier it seems and I've had a cold for 3 weeks now and it doesn't seem to be improving much.

Does anyone have any experience with handling getting sick while their immune system is on vacation?

I used to get like that when I first started 6MP but it eventually tapered off and I didn't get sick as often or as long. Hopefully the same happens for you. Always wash your hands and don't touch your face.
