    Have been on Enbrel for over 10 years and has been effective, up until now. Doctor now suggests a new med, a non TNF blocker, to help relieve a now more active joint deteoriation.

    I was one of the original users of this medication. I developed RA at 18, although I wasn't diagnosed until 22 and was already in the "moderate to severe" category in every mobile joint in my body other than my spine.

    Enbrel has been a miracle drug for me. I was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis at the age of three. I am sixty years old now. I started on Humira 12 years ago and after about three years was switched to Enbrel. I am more physically active on Enbrel in the last almost ten years than I was able to be for my entire life prior. I can run! I can wear pretty shoes! I can get up out of a bat ... Show Full Comment
