Hi. Welcome to Healingwell! I've taken enbrel now about 8 months. It works, although how soon it works depends on who you ask. For some, it can kick in within a month or so. With me, it took more like 6 months. But, this summer my rheumy added mtx to the enbrel and it took 100% of my pain and stiffness away. Enbrel and mtx are a lethal combination for many types of inflammatory arthritis. Clearly, it is the best combination for me; just have to be careful with the side effects. Since you're already taking mtx, and you just added the enbrel, if you're anything like me, you will feel the difference after about the 3rd injection. I hope it works for you.
