It took a little more then 2 months for Enbrel to work. At first it wasn't great but certainly lessened the pain. Now I rarely am in great pain. However I am currently having skin eruptions. They started with what I thought was a pimple on my chin that just would go away. I then started getting these in various places all over my body. Today I have them on my face, buttocks, back, upper arm ... Show Full 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.

I was reluctant to give it a try, but after DMARD and maxing out on Methotrexate, I gave in, praying that relief would come. THey say hind sight is always 20/20, and I guess it is true. Within 8 wks I felt like a new woman. Been almost a yr and lets hope it keeps working.....

Comment:
Can't get past the chance that by taking this drug ,that works, I will be diagnosed with lymphoma or such. A little paranoia. I too got very red after a painful injection. Besides keeping the med out of the fridge for abount an hour, if you prefreeze the injection site with an ice pack for a few minutes before it is actually quite painless. Hope this helps.
