Has anyone failed a couple tnf blockers ,like humira and enbrel, then had success with a third one? I know they say after failing at least 2 decreases the chances with a 3rd one, but has it worked for anyone?? I know you can build up antibodies to them. What about cimzia. Since it's pegylated, it's supposed to mask it from your immune system.
I have been using Cimzia for almost 5 years now and it is absolutely great! The shot is designed for people that have arthritis....unlike the horrible spring loaded shots Ie humaria. I was originally on remicaid and had the infusions then switched to humara then to cimzia. I also have a life time copay assistance wtih cimzia. I love cimzia it has made me feel 100percent better!
@dorthea. Ugh! That's terrible about the mans elbow! It's a scary medicine, but at this point, it's the only thing helping me. I have a neighbor who was on prednisone for years, and she suffered some spinal compression fractures! Your damned if you do, and damned if you don't. This disease is awful!
I am so glad that it works for you. best wishes Lola
