For My Grandmother: Psoriatic Arthritis And Cimzia


Hello there! I haven't been on this section of the forum before, but I was curious about Cimzia as a biologic for my grandmother.

Is there anyone here who deals with psoriatic arthritis who takes Cimzia? Also: is there anyone who takes it who has heart problems, or a pacemaker? Or know of anyone who does?

She's currently on Methotrexate, but still experiences awful flares and I would really like to help her. She used to be on Remicade for it years ago which really helped, but she developed heart failure from it -- and prednisone gave her diabetes, so she has to be very careful.
