Enbrel or Arava?

Enbrel or Arava?

Went to the rheumatologist today and he is taking me off methotrexate. The side effects are just too much for me even though they kind of make you feel like there's something wrong with you. He said "Most people have few, if any, side effects but I guess you are in that minority". Grrrrrr....that just kind of gets on my nerves for some reason. I apparently have a choice between Enbrel or Arava. Thoughts? Experiences? Recommendations? Thanks!

My hair thinned out too, but I also have a Thyroid problem that the DR. says is the cause. Check on your thyroid
