    Enbrel Question

    Psoriatic arthritis. Been taking Enbrel slightly more than one year with no side effects - 2 50mg pens/week. US insurer wanted my Rx changed to 1 pen per week. Dermatologist was fine with the dosage change. When I went to fill the renewal, the cost remained the same instead of dropping by half. Pharmacy said that was correct since the cost reflected what the monthly dose was. The drug isn't cheap so I left without filling. I'm concurrently taking MTX. I am contacting my MDs to see if the dose for the MTX needs to change if I stop taking Enbrel. My question, after all that, is if there's any danger to stopping cold turkey; should I be tapering instead?

    Thanks for your responses.
