Enbrel 50 Mg

Enbrel® (etanercept) is an injectable medication used to treat several different types of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. It comes in different strengths -- the exact dosage your healthcare provider recommends will be based on various factors, such as age, weight, and the condition being treated.
For example, in adults with rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and psoriatic arthritis, the usual dose is 50 mg of Enbrel per week. This can be given as one dose once per week or divided into two 25-mg injections, given three or four days apart.
When treating children and teens (up to age 17) with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, the amount of medication prescribed depends largely on weight: 0.8 mg per kg per week (a little less than 0.4 mg per pound per week), up to Enbrel 50 mg per week.
