Cimzia or ustekinumab

Hey I live in the uk but I've heard loads about cinimza I have already tried Adalimumab and humira. I was wondering even though I'm in the uk does anyone no if there is a way I can get it cause my gi said its not improved here.
Also my only option seems be either a stoma or the ustekinumab has anyone tried this and thinks it works?
Any advice would be helpful not sure what decision to make, thank you.

I'm guessing you mean Cimzia? I was on it a year and it didn't work for me.

Have you tried Remicade (Infliximab) ? If not, I would think that would be another option for you. I too was on Cimzia but after a year, it stopped working for me. I'm now on Remicade for 10 months and it's been great for me.

After Cimzia failed, we added Imuran/azathioprine. That didn't work, so we switched to Remicade and stayed on the imuran. That helped a lot, but not all the way, so we maxed out the dose (10mg/kg). That didn't seem to help, so I'm not sure what's next. I see my GI on Friday. I've been battling this flare for 20 months. :/
