Hello Kazzie!
I've been injecting Enbrel each week for some years now. The actual injections are easy to do (you will probably be taught how to administer them by your RA nurse or consultant) and I found I am somewhat improved by this drug. Of course any existing damage won't be suddenly repaired but any flare ups should be less frequent.Of course the results can be variable -some people can get a complete remission and others may find it doesn't work for them.
Enbrel has to be kept refrigerated as soon as it is delivered to your home so that can cause some logistical problems if, for example, you are planning on travelling anywhere.
Good luck with your treatment!
