    I am wondering about others thoughts on the length of time needed for enbrel to start working. I have been on Enbrel for 15 weeks (almost 4 months now) to treat my RA. I am only 28 years old, and was previously on Plaquenil and Prednisone. Neither of which worked for me. I am still having a lot of pain in the joints in my hands and feet , as well as my jaw.

Dr changed his melds but did not do any scans or X-rays. Wish he had. 12 months ago his collar bone broke spontaneously. He was using the mouse on his PC. At the emergency room they found shadows in his lungs. CT-Scan showed stage 4 met ... Show Full Comment
