i take that, starts off with 1 injection every week for 6 weeks and then 1 every 2 weeks. These are not pen injections like other anti-tnf drugs and are proper syringes with fancy handles.
The drug itself works well, i noticed a difference within 4 hours but after 6 months i still get some pain (I also take luflunomide along side), its not a cure but helps.
Health Care at home who deliver the medicaton are excellent and very professional and friendly.
Still need to have blood tests with this drug but its now every 8 weeks which is nice.
Hope this drug works for you :)

regards

Paul

Hi Paul,

Would you be interested in taking part in research around Cimzia? We are looking for Cimzia users with varying degrees of RA to participate in interviews about the way in which the drug is administered. The aim is to help create a better device for administering it.

There will be a 200 honorarium offered to participants.

If you are interested, please do get in touch.

Thanks,
George
