Have been on enbrel for 20 weeks now and actually have experience more pain in wrist than before. Rheumatologist wants me to start arava along with enbrel. I am also taking 5mgs prednisone daily, meloxicam every now and then. I also have hashimotos (hypothyroidism) and take levothyroxine. For a person who really dislikes taking any meds, I feel like I am taking quite a bit. I am hesitant to start the avara. I guess I am concerned about my liver and other side effects.
and... does anyone out there experience numbness and tingling in hands and lower legs? Sometimes it keeps me awake at night. It is a strange feeling.
