I did my 2nd injection. Now, I’ve got chills really and with uti symptoms. Heading into express care soon but wondering if anyone taking Enbrel has had this happen?
I started Enbrel around the time I had been on prednisone for almost a year. Once I stopped prednisone, a lot of my health issues, including high glucose levels, high blood pressure, moon face, UTIs, insomnia, and stones, went away. I have now been on Enbrel for almost three years with no side effects.
Yes, as far as I have noticed. Most of these meds cause UTI's . Drinking plenty of water helps flush it faster to help get them.
I'm so sorry to hear that's happening. I was on prednisone and methotrexate for years. I developed cushings disease and my liver was not handling pain meds or methotrexate. I moved from northern Minnesota and just quite taking the prednisone. It took me a couple of years to lose the cushings caused by constant prednisone. I found leflunamide was better than methotrexate (for me) now I'm on a patch for pain, leflunamide and enbrel. In not saying it will work for everyone but I list 70lbs when I got off prednisone. Its a good drug for short term but I will never take it as an everyday thing ever again. Keep talking to your ra Dr. A good doctor will run labs and keep u up to date w newest best meds. Hopefully u will find one with little side effects. Yogurt always when on antibiotics. I think they should always give a woman a script for yeast infection whenever they prescribe antibiotics! This last year has been rough...things are never "Great" with this disease but live life the best u can, give yourself a "down day" if your body is screaming at u. Don t be hard on yourself. Surround yourself with ppl who live and understand. Personally, family either loves u n understands or they dont! Sorry your going through this. Keep a journal. Record what u eat and your activities n how u feel. Bring it to appointments. Some foods are harder on us RA patients...with other diseases to consider. Drink a lot of flyidd..not soda or pop...water! Hope u feel better soon!
Thank you so much❤️ I am so happy you have found the right meds to work for you:-) I can’t wait to restart the Enbrel tomorrow. My goal to is hopefully get off the prednisone I have gained some weight as well on it;-( thank you for the advice I greatly appreciate it:-)
