I got diagnosed a year ago. I started the Enbrel last May. I have had 2 flares since. I also am taking 22 mg. of mtx. a week. Also plaquinel, and prednesone (dont mind my spelling). Doc wants me to take the mtx. by injection. (Otrexup) I am scared of the warnings. It has been approved by my insurance and still going to cost me 150 a month. Same as Embrel. I do get the free copay for a year but what happens then? I have to pay out of pocket for both injections? That is 300 a month for just those. Just need some advise and support I guess. I do not feel like the Enbrel is working as good as it did in June. I am back to feeling like crap everyday and some of the pain and inflammation has returned. Feeling discouraged.
