Has anyone found they get an increase in disease activity or a flare a few days after their Cimzia infections? I've just realized that the worst time I've had recently has been around 3-4 days after each injection and lasts for 5-8 days or so. I've only been on Cimzia four around 2.5mths, I think I'm around 6 weeks past my last loading dose.
Just curious to know if anyone else experiences this? It is not mentioned as a possible side effect in the product information.

Hi EllieKate, I am new to this site and have just read your post and I am experiencing the exact same side effects. I've recently started Cimzia alongside Sulfasalazine for RA. I had my last loading dose on Thursday and yesterday and today I have had really bad fatigue and am in a lot of pain all over. I have experienced this every time a few days after the loading dose. Did you ever have any benefit from Cimzia once on the maintainence doses? Really hope this worked for you in the end. Xx
I was on cimzia for a year and it didn't help me at all
I am having similar issues. Took my last loading dose Friday and woke up on Monday with severe body aches like the flu without a fever and congestion. I had similar symptoms with my second dose. Did it get better?
I was on it but never experienced that. Why haven't you taken it for the last 6 weeks>
