    Hi ive been injecting my son for 8 years with the enbrel that i had to mix with no pain. this week they sent me the premixed injections and he freaked out from the pain and burning sensation. i felt so bad. no one told me that this was going to happen. i left it out for 30 minutes and i injected him in his arm which was very painful. any advice..don;t know how to inject in stomach which sound less painful..thanks

    Unfortunatley the prefilled Enbrel injections burn while the original Enbrel you mixed yourself does not burn. Let your pharmacy know that your son could not tolerate. Hopefully they can exchange it for you.
