    Hello and welcome to the forum. I don't take enbrel but, if you click on here http://www.arthritiscare.org.uk/AboutArthritis/Treatments/taking-medication/medication-types#lGvu and scroll to the bottom bit on Biologics it gives some info.
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    it didn't like me but it does like others on here. Good luck with it, you won't know what it can do until you try. DD

    Welcome to the Forum..

    I was on Enbrel for just over 9 years which is the longest I've managed to stay on any disease modifying treatment. I did get migraines and a lower body skin rash but these side effects were kept under control.

    Good luck with the treatment.

    Hi, I have been on enbrel for coming up to 3 years without problems/side effects so far, and it has helped me a fair bit & certainly more than anything I've tried up to now (methotrexate included). All the best if/when you do start on it. x
