Do you take another medication besides Cimzia to prevent antibodies from developing and if so which?

We were told that there's not as much concern with Cimzia with building up antibodies, as opposed to Remicade.
My daughter was taking Imuran to help it work better together, however she is allergic to the Aza in it. Now they are going to try 6mp and see if she can handle that with it. Cimzia just isn't doing enough on its own for her.

Thanks I'm hearing mixed feedback on whether Cimzia has the same chance of creating antibodies. My GI says I need to couple it with something like 6mp or Imuran while my rheumatologist said I don't need anything else if it works for me.
