Hi all. I've been on Enbrel for almost 4 years in combination with 20mg subcut MTX. I have been having my first real flare up for the past 6 weeks or so and am waiting for an appointment with my Rheumy next week. I have spoken to the specialist nurse as have been unable to come off the reducing dose of steroids that she arranged for me and had to see my GP to put it back up; she thinks that it may be the Enbrel losing efficacy and talked about it being changed to an alternative.
Does anyone have any experience of Enbrel failing? AFter how long? And how did it present with regards to your symptoms? What action was taken in changing your treatment?
Thanks in advance.
