Cimzia

Cimzia

Has anyone used Cimzia and Simponi Aria as a combo? I use methotrexate and it's not working.

I've not used either one.
Check out the prescription side effects on Cimzia and Simponi online. Both lower ability of immune system to fight infections. Reported increase in fungal and bacterial infections during use. I don't see how they could be prescribed in a combo?

BC. I have used both simponi did nothing for me.but CIMIZA I had good results with it for a year.but when it quits working it gave no signs.and it takes like 3 MONTHS to get in your system.but I don't think they would mix both drugs together.methotrexate made me deathly sick.

So ... my LFTs have gone haywire and have to stop methotrexate and other liver toxic meds. Ugh ... and f- yi - they would never use Cimzia with Simponi Aria

I've never heard of either. I guess I've been out of the loop for too long. I used to volunteer for the National Psoriasis Foundation and I used to go to doctors offices and the teaching hospital and teach the doctors about Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis. That was back in 2008. Amazing how much things have changed since then.

@A MySpondylitisTeam Member ty. Methotrexate doesn't seem to bother me so much but I take the highest dose of 25 mg injection and may be doing more harm than good. Methotrexate and Cimzia are both DMARDS so I thought maybe they could be swapped one for the other as I continued Simponi Aria.
