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.
Been on Enbrel for over a year.Doing very well on it.Do have some side effects: Sinusites,upper respiratory tract.Also take Vioxx with the Enbrel.
As far as injection have know problems.Clean the area first with alcohol pad and take the shot,afterwards clean again with a clean alcohol pad,have know problems.Jean
