Hey all! I'm curious if anyone has had a problem with injecting Enbrel? I've been doing it for years and for the first time recently I had what I think was a faulty pen. It didn't make the normal clicking sound that happens when you press the button down -- instead it made a loud whirring sound that made me jump and immediately pull the needle out...which, of course, resulted in medicine going all over my hand and leg.

You might consider calling Amgen Customer Support Line, the mfg of Enbrel. Typically, they will replace free of charge a faulty injector pen, a rare event, but nothing mechanical is perfect.
I’ve had some make weird swooshing noises upon activation, but always got the reassuring “click” ....and after counting to 10, the “yellow plastic” shows fully in the window...so de facto, that sweet Enbrel nectar has to be in my subcutaneous fascia...right where I like it to be!
