| | Enbrel -- How long does it take to start working?
I posted below with a question about the Enbrel solution. Dawnrise, thanks for the reply.
I have psoriatic arthritis and I just started on Enbrel and will take my third injection this evening (don't know why I do it at night, but I guess I just have more time than in the mornings).
When I started on Enbrel, my Dr. had me stop the MTX as soon as I started the Enbrel. I've noticed a very slight drop off in my condition and my morning stiffness is back a little bit (MTX had almost completely removed my morning stiffness, but I still have a couple of swollen joints we are trying to help with the Enbrel). Obviously, I think this slight drop off in my condition is due to the fact that I've stopped the MTX and am now in a little gap period while I'm waiting for the Enbrel to take effect, but I'm curious as to how long it took Enbrel to take effect in other people. I've heard anywhere from a few days to 2 or 3 months, and I'm sure it varies, but what have people experienced here?
