I just wanted to know as I have been on 25mgs sub cut MTX and don't want to stay on it. No one advised me on stopping and I simply didn't take MTX last week in readiness for my first Enbrel shot yesterday. This is because I agreed to take Enbrel in an injection clinic and wasn't advised re stopping the MTX. I did say I wanted to stop the MTX as it wasn't doing what it should anyhow.
I know often MTX is reduced right down over time when in a combi but my nurse says Enbrel is the main biologic which can be used alone which is why I chose it to be honest. So I didn't have to have that high dose MTX. Or ANY MTX. If I had discussed Enbrel in the regular clinic I would have been able to sort this. Just another of many hurdles I have had on the Enbrel path, but at least I have had my first one now. I am waiting to hear back from the nurse.
