  • It doesn't take long to get used to giving yourself injections. After the adjustment period, it's wonderful!
    Taken for: Psoriasis (moderate to severe)
    Duration taken: Two years or more
  • When injecting in the thigh, there is a "sweet spot" where it is less painful...I am still trying to get it on that spot each time but I can't seem to get it right.

  • Make sure to use the Enbrel support system. It gives you free access to Registered Nurses and supplies sharps containers, little cooler, and alcohol wipes.

  • Try it if you have been going through the regimen of stronger and stronger NSAID's and seeing weaker relief. Which is what happened with me. Biologics are the end of the line. A shot a week. No problems.

  • You can leave it sitting out longer than the 30 minutes to decrease the discomfort of the injection. If it is room temperature then it generally doesn't hurt. Take it in your abdomen.

  • Let it warm to room temperature before injecting 15-30min. Make sure the alcohol is dry before injecting or it will sting. It hurts less if you inject it into the stomach.

  • When on Enbrel medication speak to your arthritis consultant immediately if you catch a virus, if the virus affects your chest they will advise you on what to do, if you are struggling to get over the virus contact your consultant.
