Does anyone know if the enbrel sureclick is available in this country or is it only America.
It is just like an epipen used by diabetics.
I think it would be so much better for my son than a syringe.
Thanks
Julie

    I had a look on the Wyeth web site and it doesn't look as if it's been licensed for use in the UK yet.

    You could always ring them on 01628 604377 and ask.

    I've just been assessed for tnf's and have elected Humira as it is dosed in a epipen. So looks like it is hope it helps your boy.

    Humira isn't Enbrel, and Julie was asking about Enbrel.

    Thanks for your replies
    Roczco I will phone on Monday and ask.
    I'm very fortunate that Sam has GP and consultant who will try everything to get the best for him, so if there is any way of getting it in the sureclick i'm sure they will get it.
    Sam already has a medication that is not registered in this country, my pharmacist orders it from America.
    Thanks again
