Hello all -
I was on Enbrel for a year (25 mg 2x a week), off for pregnancy, then have been back on for 8 months (50 mg 1x a week). Last week I had a terrible cold and decided it was probably best to skip my shot for the week. Other than one day of mild pain in one joint (as opposed to the 4 or 5 joints that are afflicted with the PA), I felt fine! I am feeling better as far as my cold is concerned and did my shot again yesterday. So here's my question...
How often do you all administer Enbrel?
Do you think it would be just as effective if it was done once every other week?
I will talk further with my rheumy about this next time I go in (in January), but was just wondering if anyone else tinkered with the idea of reducing the freqency of the shots. I'd love to hear your thoughts! Thanks.
