Re: Reaction to injection site on Enbrel
It's very normal to get a puffy red, itchy reaction to the shot and in subsequent weeks, you may even activate the earlier shot sites. But my understanding is that when you get that kind of reaction and it doesn't itch, that is different. Antibodies are building.
There are many TNF inhibitors out there and in different classes as well. I am allergic to the entire family that Humira is in. Enbrel made me even sicker. But I am now on Orencia and I feel great.
So don't worry, you'll find something that works and that you aren't having an antibody reaction to.
