Advice & Tips
I was on Enbrel for over 4 years (before MS dx), and it did wonders for my rheumatoid arthritis condition. When I was dxed with MS, my rhematologist was concerned about keeping me on Enbrel, so he discussed it with my neuro. My neuro said it was fine for me to stay on Enbrel, and two other neuros agreed. I changed my insurance this year, so I could see an MS Specialist and the first thing he did was have me stop taking Enbrel because he said it was making my MS worse!
