i have had success with embrel. i am 21 yr old and i have had a hard time with my RA. I have been on it for about 3-4 months and i am now able to run more and do all sorts of things that i couldn't do before.
i just freak out when i have to give myself the shot! it really is an amazing drug. i have gotten of 3 of my meds so far. that right 3.
you should really give it a try. you will feel the best you have in a long time. sometimes when i get up in the morning, i don't realize that i have RA anymore. what a feeling!
if you have any questions, please feel free to email me!
