Why did my doctor take me off of Cimzia because I have she thinks hep c. I was told I had a bladder in the kidney infection I think it's due to the methotrexate I haven't been taken off of it in years

Cimzia is one of the meds I think is more potent than any others I’ve ever taken. I could tell by how quickly it cleared up an issue under my skin and other miscellaneous things. I would agree with the other person that posted to build up your immune system. Remember you can’t get the shot if you’re sick or if you’re taking antibiotics etc. better safe than sorry. Hoping doctor knows best! Best of luck to you!
