I just started Enbrel injections. I have had 3 injections so far . How long before the Enbrel starts to make you feel better. I am also taking Methotrexate and Folic acid. I would appreciate any feedback on this .

      I’m new to using enbrel too & I’m honestly not sure what “feeling better” looks like. My hands and feet are still bad but I can generally navigate my days with rest breaks. So I have no idea if its actually helpful

      Hi Marty, I have 1 kidney and in stage 3 failure, so I can’t take the other two meds you’re on. I’ve been on Enbrel for close to a year now. The main difference I’ve noticed is, Not feeling so swollen. My inflammatory markers in my bloodwork have all come down considerably, and pain isn’t as severe. Thank God! I’m Not 💯 percent, but definitely Not as bad as I was. So hang in there, praying you’ll get some improvement as well.

        @2U4Me Yes, it took a few months before I really started to notice the difference.
