Hey bits.. I got UTIs occassionaly before the Enbrel.. but once I started it, I would get UTIs a couple times a month.. I would get one, start antibiotics, finish them, and within a day or two, get another one.. I'm on the low dose antibiotic now, that when I feel one coming on, I just pop a pill, and I'm good.. I have been off the Enbrel, the longest 1 month, and it was horrible for me.. I am now on MTX and Enbrel, and seem to be doing well.. I don't get UTIs as much anymore either.. like I said, if I feel one coming on, I take a pill.. but I haven't had to take a pill in almost 3 months.. which is really good for me.. good luck to you!
