Hi,
Welcome to healing well. It helps if you put a title on your threads then people with knowledge know to stop in to help you.
There are tons of posts on Enbril if you search the site for it you can read about how people are doing. I am not on it myself but there are lots of people here who use it and will be happy to answer your questions.

welcome nid tongue

well let me start by saying we are all different and no two people react the same but for me enbrel has been great!

before taking it i could not lift my arms to care for myself and now i move freely with ocassional pain. i was not crazy about taking a shot

but that too i have gotten use to doing- to some degree- and tell myself " just do it!"  As far as other side effects i dont think i have any?

i say think because i have a few issues but i dont think they are enbrel related.  so good luck and i say give it a try if your doc thinks it can help.

it certainly helped me!  yally  scool

hi nid, as i said we all are different but i noticed improvements within the first month and i will need the med as long as i am able to take it.  i dont think i will ever recover from RA but with my meds i will manage and control it to my best ability.  you see i had minor surgery this past winter and had to go off my meds and i was almost right back where i started from but now i am again on my meds and seeing the benifits again.  so i know i cant just stop -although i wish i could trust me- but i have to psych myself for the long haul. wish you much luck. yally
