Hi folks! It has been awhile since I have posted. I have been on three different biologics in the past year. Enbrel stopped working after 1.5 years, Humira (6 months) forget about it, Cimzia for 2 months. The Cimzia has worked leaps and bound compared to the other two but I am dealing with high blood pressure now. I am soon to be 51 and blood pressure was always in the 120 range. It spiked to the 130's and was at doctor today and it was 152. I am now on BP meds and I am scared. There is a family history of HBP in my family and my dad passed away at 55 from a massive heart attack.
I am more active since taking the Cimzia and have lost 3 pounds also. I guess it is a wait and see but I am thinking if the cimzia is causing this, I want to be off. I also have been on sulfazine for 3 years.
Any experience from any one would be greatly appreciated on this subject.
