I'm a 20 year old JRA patient as well and was just presented infomation today from my doctor about Enbrel. I've been on prednisone, naprosone, gold shots, plaquenil and had steroid injections. I'm currently on methotrexate with not much luck...still have lots of flare-ups! I need to decide SOON about Enbrel, but I'm really nervous about it since there's not much research. Any suggestions...I need to know soon!
: :I also am interested in Enbrel and if there are any others who are using it. Especially in the cases of JRA> I have a 15yr old daughter who has not responded to anything. Not NSAIDS, not Methyltrexate, not steroid injections. Enbrel is the next step. I'm concerned that there is no long-term research data available. Thanks.
: : I have just started Enbrel injections. Any feedback from current users would be appreciated.
