I have been on enbrel for 18 months now , I have been doing well on it . I do however get very tired. Not sure if this is a side effect or just the RA

After attempting another treatment first I was very sceptically and frightened. Particularly about the injection portion of the process. However I was able to finish my GCSEs and ALevels as well as maintaining my friendships and continue onto University were I lived away for tow years. I love Enbrel as it was perfect for me. I know not everyones experience is the same as my own but this treatment worked wonders for me. It has little side effects and the ones I experienced were manageable.

worked until it didn't anymore. took it for a while.
No side effects so far, may be decreasing in effectiveness. I like the pen much better than the one for Humira!

Have been on Enbrel since it's final trial phase which was 2001. It was a miracle for me for several years but recently I feel it isn't working and suspect immunity and I now am getting puffy, itchy and red at injection site
