I took Enbrel a few years ago and it was like a miracle drug for me. I didn't know how badly I felt until I felt better. It worked for about three years and then I was in big trouble. I had a reaction with Remicade IV, Cimzia and Simponi didn't help either, so after a year and a half with no relief my RA doc tried me on Enbrel again. It didn't work right away and I had compared it to the first time I had taken it when it worked the next day. He upped my shot to every five days and that helped, but then my insurance company thought it was not necessary to take it every five days. I also take pacquinel , I can't take Methtrexate (excuse the spelling please). I feel like it is working better for me now after six months but I'm afraid that it will stop working again. Has anyone else had this happen to them?
