Serious Side Effects--optical neuritis--- I took Enbrel for 2 years 3 months. For the first 18 months It really helped me live again. My swelling and pain were reduced drastically.

But it still helped me so much I was willing to live ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
This was te first drug I received to treat my RA. I had one great month. Right after the second injection, I went numb on my right side from my ribs down. It was a demyelizing event. It hasn't gone away. I am glad that this med seems to work for some people, but the risks are high. I am on a cocktail of other drug, none of which has damaged me as significantly as this drug.
