As it is not working, I apparently need to change from Enbrel to another biologic and I have been reading the leaflets my rheumy nurse gave me. I think I will opt for abatacept as it says in the paragraph about drinking alcohol that '.....if you're also taking methotrexate, you should only drink alcohol in small amounts (no more than 45 units per week) ......' . Yippee! Either that is a typo, or it is a drug which will make me very happy!!! The leaflet is dated September 2011 from arthritis research and it has really cheered me up! The other, non-typo leaflets say only 4 units of alcohol per week is allowed ....... Anyone want to join me in an abatacept cocktail! Xx Virge
