Discussions that mention enbrel

Arthritis board


This is a new anti-TNF drug somewhat like a cross between infliximab (Remicade) and etanercept (Enbrel).
You can learn more about it on [url]www.humira.com[/url]. My sister tried to get on it but her insurance won't pay for it. (Total BS they'd rather pay for more joint surgeries for her.)

Anyway, I understand it has a special needle to make it easier for people with damaged hands to inject. Also, you only inject it once every 2 weeks instead of 2X per week, like Enbrel, or have to get infused in a hospital, like Remicabe.
