  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 40 mg/0.8 mL Every Other Week
Advice & Tips: I am waiting to start Enbrel back up; insurance companies are unfair about these medications! I had to stop taking it in the first place because it had given me a lung infection. It was helping me out a lot. It took a lot of the stiffness and redness away from my joints. They weren't bothered by the arthritis pain. Since I've been off of it, I'm starting to get stiffness, and now redness back.
