: Iwas wondering if anybody who is on embrel for eight months or so, still get sight reactions. Also, first when I started the drug I had red bumps breakout here and there. They subsided for a few months, and now they are back more plentiful than ever. They're like hive bumps. They don't itch, and after a while they dry up, get scaley, and then disappear. Can anyone help ?
been on ENBREL since November of 99, it has really inproved my condition 95% But I have never experienced the sight reactions or the hives you describe. I do get a red mark where I first give myself the injection, but it disapears in a few days. I think you should speak with your doctor and find out if maybe you are having a alergic reaction, or maybe you are also taking some other medication that the combination isn't right for you. But I would definately let my doctor know of the problem. Good luck. Sabina
