Hiya Brenda, YES me!!!

I was one of the first people in the country to have it and it's Fab. Went to see the consultant last month and my RA has gone into remission it's the first time in 3yrs i have felt like my oldself. My ESR which measures the inflamation was 5 even my consultant was shocked at how quick the drug had took effect he had to check several times before he would believe it lol.

The first 4 lots you have 400mg of CIMZIA which is an injection in each leg every 2 weeks then after that it goes down to 200mg every 2 weeks and is one injection in the leg. They do the injections in either leg or stomache, the first few i had i got a bit of a swelling at the injection site and a bit of bruising, but was told to take an anti histamin 30min before and the redness and swelling was gone.

Good luck with your injections let us know how you get on. Amelia x

Hi Amelia,

I hope you don't mind me contacting you via the forum.

I work for a company that carries out market research on behalf of medical device companies. It is likely that in the next few weeks we will be asked to take on a project looking at how Cimzia users feel about a new drug delivery device. As you know, it can be quite difficult to administer.

I wondered whether you would be willing to take part in a face to face interview about a new device. We are paying an honorarium to anyone that takes part in the research (200) and could in theory interview in any location across the UK (although major cities would be preferred).

Would this be of interest? If so, please do get in touch.

Best regards,
George
