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.
@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.

That's exactly what the rheumy said. No two are prescribed together.
Have tried a few humira first and it did nothing. Then Enbrel - did nothing. Now Simponi Aria infusions that are only lasting about 4-6 weeks. My rheumy wants me to go on Remicade but insurance denied bc I have nrAxSpA and not indicated for that. It's frustrating. Thx!
