Hi, I tried Enbrel for three or four months...
sorry to say it didn't stop my Palendromic Rheumatism Pain...I developed a "Killer Cough"
and because I was on Methotrexate and Enbrel my
doc sent me to a lung specialist who did a lung
biopsy...he didn't find anything wrong but told
me to stop the Methotrexate and Enbrel and try
Celebrex...I did and the cough went away...but
not my pain...I take Prednisone (20mg a day now) and I have found it is the only drug that stops
my pain...its not a good drug but it works...
and a day without pain is better than three with
pain. For my 2 cents I would tell you skip the
Embrel and try Celebrex or Vioxx (and think about
Prednisone too). :)
have been on it for 9 years no
