    Hi Kezzo

    Basically the criteria is you need to have tried Methotrexate and one other DMARD before you would be considered for Enbrel.

    If you would like to read more about other treatments available for RA please see our booklet on Drugs and complementary medicines: http://www.arthritiscare.org.uk/PublicationsandResources/Listedbytype/@73084

    Hope this helps
