I've tried both-Enbrel is better and works faster.

Welcome to the HW forum. Glad you were able to join us.
Humira worked for me better than any other medication I have tried. But eventually it failed and I switched to Enbril. The good news is that it's every other week injection rather than weekly. Best wishes to you and your new baby!

If you go on Humira and it doesn't work for you, you can sometimes
Get the Dr to write to insurance company and tell them that it doesn't work for you. You can follow up with the insurance company
To request to have an exception made due to failure of Humira.
I am having the same problem with Xeljantz XR. The company that
Makes Xeljantz has been supplying me with it for over 6 months
Free while they try to gat the insurance to cover it. You could call
The company that makes Enbrel and ask if they have any way to help you. Good Luck.
