Comment:
I have both Rheumatoid & Osteo Arthritis & Fibromyalgia. Enbrel has been wonderful. I can't use the easy click but have no problem with giving myself the shot. Site burns for a short time but well worth it. I have much less pain & stiffness with Enbrel. I have had a lot of infections & had to stop it several times but just for 2-3 wks at a time & then back on it.

A couple months later he started getting psychological problems. ... Show Full Comment

This drug improves mobility in my knees and hands. I still am very stiff after sitting for 5 to 10 min. I have been getting headaches though. I am going to check my diet before blaming Enbrel.

Comment:
I was diagnosed with RA 2 years ago. I have taken methotrexate, plaquenil and imuran for treatment, but I still would get flares, requiring prednisone. I started Enbrel 12 weeks ago, and I feel so much better. I still need to take Imuran and ibuprophen 400mg twice a day, but I feel like my joints have been lubricated and the pain is 95% relieved.
