Start Off Right,
Stay on Track

Getting started on CIMZIA the right way can help set you up for treatment success. Let’s dive in!

First things first, testing

Before you start on CIMZIA, your doctor will let you know if there are any tests needed, such as a tuberculosis (TB) or hepatitis B test. You should not start any biologic therapy if you have an active infection or recently received a live vaccine. Always consult your doctor if you have questions about any tests or when you should or should not take your medication.

You and your doctor will determine whether you will self-inject CIMZIA at home or have CIMZIA administered by a healthcare professional at your doctor's office.

Next, get started with treatment

Self-injection of CIMZIA

Getting your prescription

  • If you will be injecting CIMZIA at home, find out if you’re eligible for the CIMplicity® Savings Program*
  • Arrange to have your first prescription filled and sent either to your home for self-injection or to your local pharmacy for pickup. If you are eligible for the CIMplicity Savings Program, you will need your card number when speaking to the specialty pharmacy

When it’s time to inject

  • Take CIMZIA as prescribed by your doctor: This includes starter doses and/or maintenance doses
  • Taking CIMZIA at home: If you and your doctor decide that you will self-inject at home, your prescription will come in a prefilled syringe and you will receive injection training from your doctor
  • Record the date and injection site of each CIMZIA injection on your calendar
