Cimzia Medication Information

The prescription medication Cimzia® (certolizumab pegol) is approved for the treatment of both Crohn's disease and rheumatoid arthritis. As a tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blocker, this product works to decrease the inflammation and relieve the signs and symptoms associated with these diseases.
 
Cimzia comes in injectable form. Your healthcare provider will give you the injections. Each dose consists of one or two injections given just under the skin in the abdomen (stomach) or thigh. How often treatment will continue from there and for how long depend on the condition being treated and how you respond to the medicine.
 
Prior to beginning treatment with Cimzia, review the safety information with your healthcare provider so you are aware of possible side effects. In addition, tell your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you have and any other drugs you are taking. This will help ensure a safe, effective treatment process.
