Cimzia Kicked in for me today (just after 2nd loading dose)

I got really sick with the flu right before my 2nd loading dose and was feeling miserable for a few days, but am happy to report that the flu is clearing up, and today for the first time since I took 40 mg of Prednisone last summer, I am feeling better than I have in ages. No joint pain and my energy is returning.

I had my second loading dose on Monday and it's Thursday now, so it's been 2 weeks plus three days.

I hadn't expected it to take effect so quickly, even though I usually have really good response to medication.

Hang in all of you who are still waiting. When it starts working, you will feel so much better! I will gladly stab myself with that needle in another two weeks.
