I have found a great deal of relief. I still have much stiffness and pain in my hands and will be discussing adding something to my treatment. As for cost, I called Enbrel 800-4Enbrel and was provided with a card that pays 50% of my co-pay and they also have a program for assistance that you qualify for by income levels. Most drug companies have programs to assist in paying for your meds, you n ... Show Full Comment

I'm 31 and was diagnosed with RA 4 months ago. I started on the Enbrel 1 month ago and the pain in my hands, shoulders and feet is practically gone. I have a hard time getting myself to inject the meds (even with the auto-injectors). Nonethless, this drug has really proven itself in such a short amount of time.

Today I have them on my face, buttocks, back, upper arm ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Been on this for 9 years now. It was really my wonder drug, after a few weeks of the injections, I was feeling much better. And even now it continues to work. I'm very pleased. The only downside if the injection site is sore for a day, but can be helped with an ice pack every now and then.
