Anyone Have Good Results With Enbrel?

Anyone Have Good Results With Enbrel?

I have been on Enbrel almost 3 weeks and I do not feel any different. I don’t have any negative side effects either. I am also on methotrexate 10 tabs weekly. Concerned about being on 2 immunosuppressive drugs.

Thanks! I still have not felt any improvement, although I did have to skip a week because of a cold. If anything this condition has taught me patience. Hoping I can get off the methotrexate soon.

Enbrel?

Enbrel?

My RA is not "controlled" my doctor said cause I am having a high amount of activity he wanted to put me on enbrel. Personally I don't want to do injections, I'm scared. But I am trying to up my methotrexate to 8 tables now...and still 2mg prednisone, but he says that if I get off methotrexate he said I will be able to get off prednisone which is what I want....but I feel cornered....I don't know what to do....

That is great that you can tolerate the methotrexate as an injection. I could not tolerate it even as an injection. What is the issue with the Enbrel? I used to take that as… read more

Site Injection Reaction The Day After Enbrel

Site Injection Reaction The Day After Enbrel

This is my 3rd injection of Enbrel. First two no problems. Then I had to take 3 weeks to battle covid and a uti. Last night I did my 3rd injection and today I noticed redness and warmth where I injected. No itching or pain. It did sting pretty good this time even though I left it out for a couple of hours before injecting. Is this normal?

A myRAteam Member said:

I completely agree, I have noticed I am better with my stiffness. I will take some of those side effects to notice a difference. I am hoping to get more relief. Rheumatologist says it can take 3-6… read more

Sooooo nervous. I start Enbrel next week. Going in for a teaching Saturday. Anything I should know about being on Enbrel? Also, how do you know if it's a flare or you're just having a really, really, really bad day?
