Anyone else on Kineret?

I was on Kineret for about 3 weeks. My doctor switched me from Enbrel to Kineret to see if it would make a difference. Well it had a big effect and not a good one. I found the shots to burn very badly when i took them and i got very bad rashes that spread out from the injection site. I tried it for 3 weeks and finally had to call my doctor and get off it. I went back to Enbrel and things have calmed down a lot. I also did make a call to the Kineret nurse line asking if it was just me or did others have a problem with the painful injections. I was told it is to be expected the shots will burn when being taken but the rash was not a normal thing.

Wishing you well,
