hi everyone, hope the suns shining where ever you are today!
so joyous openg over, lets get down to business....
my boy tom, (14 on monday eeek im getting old lol) is to commence enbrel, 50mg per week via one injection, he is no longer to take mtx as it makes him very ill. so, this all sounds good so far, except, his bloods are showing inflammation still and his feet are sore.
as you can imagine when i googled this wonderful anti-tnf drug i grew alarmed, yes i know all drugs have side effects, but this is my boy and i am saying the doctors know what there doing, it should help. Am i lying?? or am i worrying for nothing??
so, my main question is those of you lovely people that are on enbrel, do you have any side effects?? how was arthur when you were waiting for it to work??
frightened he is going to end up in more pain due to no mtx and potentially 12 weeks for this drug to take effect.... bloody nora!!!!!!!!!!!
ok, thanks for reading
