Which option sounds right to you?

I have been on Cimzia for almost 2 months now. I think it in combination with Entocort is slowly making a difference.

Here is my problem/question:

I faint within 5minutes of taking my 2nd dose and am a complete zombie for hours after(my hubby has to carry me to bed).

My dr and pharmacist thinks my blood pressure is bottoming out. I have low blood pressure to begin with. My options are eating something right before I take the injection or taking one injection every 2 weeks. Does an injection every 2 weeks work better for some? The theory is 2 at a time is too much for my body.
