In Reply to: Using Enbrel in early stages, any experiences? posted by Randolph Pagent on April 25, 2000 at 20:05:18:
: I was certain I posted this question a few days ago but don't see it anywhere, forgive me if I have accidently doubled it.
: The Wall Street Journal's online edition just published a story about the Food and Drug Administration recommending that Enbrel be offered to people with early stage rheumatoid arthritis. It explained the recommendation but didn't discuss anyone's personal experience with Enbrel. I went to
: caregiverzone.com to see if there was more information there because they usually cover this kind of news in detail, but they haven't posted new stuff yet for today. Before I go searching anywhere else, I wanted to find out if anyone on the front lines was using it and what you thought.
A friend of mine has been taking Enbrel for several months and it is the first medication that has really worked for her she seems very happy with it except when she forgets to take it. If you wish, I could have her give you more details.
