I have Crohn's disease & take cimzia (certolizumab pegol) injectables. It isnt taking care of all my symptoms. Is there another class of drug I can add with the cimzia (certolizumab pegol)?

In brief: 6MP , MTX

The medications that can be used with Cimzia (certolizumab pegol) most commonly include 6mp - azathiorine or Methotrexate (in addition to Mesalamine / steroids).
Natalizumab is an other biologic that can be used in those where anti-tnfs (like cimzia) fail, but they are not used together.
