I'm not Duck, but I am on Enbrel.
My story: I was on MTX injections for 4 months with a little success, but not enough. I started Enbrel injections along with the MTX, I felt significantly better about
2 months after starting.
This was all about
1.5 years ago. about
4 months ago, I started (with Dr. support) to reduce my MTX amounts, trying to discover what the right amount of MTX is for my situation (in combination with Enbrel). It is a slow process, only reducing the amount by tenths of a CC once every few months. So far, I've not hit the threshold yet.
I have not had any problems with Enbrel, other than the needle is much thicker than the needles I use for the MTX
But, the combination of MTX and Enbrel has made me as healthy as I can be, where MTX alone did not seem to do the trick.
I'm not near a
location where where Remicade infusions are possible, hell my rheumatologist is 3.5 hours away. Enbrel was the best choice for me given my lifestyle and
