I have had crohns since I was 9 and was misdiagnosed for 3 years. I have over the years been just going with it and have not been on meds for a few years now. Im a little concerned on this Cimzia drug especially on my active lifestyle and the side effects (mainly the bad effects like death). Shouldnt I be trying other drugs first. My disease is in bad condition but have not had any surgerys yet. I would like to know from fellow crohns members some info based on yourselves taking cimzia and whats the good and bad behind it please. I start the drug next week and am very nervous trying it. I do not like drugs and believe agaiinst meds but I do wish to conquer my crohns now rather then go with it. Any info would be really appreciated.
