Sue, did your doc prescribe any antibiotics along with the prednisone for the infection? Any fever over 100 is not good when you are on a biologic. Has the fever gone ?
Sorry you're back on pred but hope it helps

It's down to normal. I think it was inflammation. He said we'll talk about cimzia with mercapturine in a week or so. And increasing cimzia till it all kicks in. So, here I go again. Funny thing...on of my daughters said I should just get a bag now, because I might me to old later! I'm only in my 40's!

I'm glad to hear the fever is gone
I was just concerned because it was so high.

How old is your daughter ? LOL. I don't think you're ever too old for an ostomy, however I'm sure you'd like to avoid it as long as possible !

Yeah I eas concerned also. One of the reasons that I didn't want to rush, r my girls. It was 4:30am. They'd be off to school in a few hrs. So I took meds to hopefully bring my temp down. And it did! My twins r 12. Best thing that ever happened to me! 😄😍. How's your girl?

Sue-2009 I'm just checking in to see if you're feeling any better ?

Sorry, I've been super busy lately and now I'm on vacation away.
My daughter seems to be doing "ok" right now. She's starting to think she may be allergic to the 6mp that was recently started, but hopefully she's wrong.

I finished my starter dose pack but haven't felt any difference yet. I know it's early but I'm praying this works. I can't take flaring anymore.

Yeah, I burned through my starter set. No relief. I'm tapering off prednisone, increase Cimzia & restarted Mercapturine w/allopurinol. So, it's wait and see. I love/hate prednisone Keep me posted u guys. I hope this works for us.

Hi guys - I started Cimzia around May 15 so it's been a little over 2.5 months but I'm not feeling any better. I also never had bloody BM's until about a month ago. In the past week, I've had some BM's that were so bloody the whole toilet was red. Do I still have hope that the Cimzi will work or do you think it's time to try something else? My GI said they typically wait 4 months before switching to see if it will work. Ugh. I'm getting married November 2nd and really need to be better by then!

Hi--Just starting Cimzia after remicade failed to bring me into remission. Does anyone have a successful experience with Cimzia and how long did it take?
