Has enbrel stopped working for you?
Rheumatoid arthritis: Has enbrel stopped working for... - NRAS
Hi yes. I’ve been on it for 7 years now. I had a few more flare ups and consultant said it is probably wearing off but I’ve had a steroid jab about 7 weeks ago and I’m still not too bad .. still doing embrel. My question is when do you know when it really is wearing off. ? They’ve suggested Rituximab which is a bit scary but will go for it if I know that the embrel has really worn off. But don’t want to stop it if it is still working TTx
Hi, been on it for a year , just on my third lot . Feel really ill after the infusion but next day fine , had no side effects but it doesn’t keep my RA in check but I can still work and do things . Enbrel , a lot of time I forgot I had RA because it worked so brilliantly on me ☺️
So as far as I am concerned it’s good but just not as good as Enbrel, on my body
Hi, I was off Enbrel for a couple of months and not my best time , I had NO drugs for my RA at that time apart from steroids . I don’t take methotrexate
I am positive 👍👍
I go on Monday for my second dose because you go every 6 months and have a dose two weeks apart . I am in hospital for about 6 hours a time
I was doing well with Enbrel combined with azathioprine. My rheumatologist and I decided to stop the azathioprine and see if the Enbrel alone would work. Well, it didn't so I started back on the azathioprine with the Enbrel and haven’t been able to achieve the same degree of wellness. It’s only been a couple of weeks, so there is still hope, but I’m very disappointed to say the least.
