Question Psoriatic Arthritis/Enbel/Methotrexate

I have been on methotrexate for 3 years. Doctor bumped me up to 8 pills weekly today (2.5 mg * 8 = 20 mg). We also discussed Enbrel since Remicade did not work. I also had 2 disks (c5&5 and c6&7) removed last year. Nothing but pain for the last 3 years. Does anyone know if/how Enbrel is effective? I want to get back my quality of life, it's slipping away rapidly. Help.

I started Enbrel this past April and by July I was almost pain-free. Able to do things I haven't been able to do in years and had energy to boot. I'm very happy with this medication. It's definately worth giving a try. Just remember, everybody is different and might not have the same results. Also, if you don't have insurance it's a very expensive drug. But good luck.
