    Hi Ramona,

    I don't want to discourage you from Enbrel by any means because it sounds like it works for a lot of people. Some people have said it takes 3 months before it really works.

    My personal experience was different. I only had 3 doses and I started having issues after two. I was feeling pretty bad physically/emotionally and after the third dose I asked my doctor for something different because I felt THAT bad. That is just me though...everybody is different and will have different experiences.
