Problems With Enbrel

People with different types of arthritis, such as ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis, often obtain relief from symptoms with the drug Enbrel® (etanercept). Problems with this medication -- if they even occur -- are generally mild and easily treated; however, it is important to be aware of the risk of side effects.
For example, in clinical studies, common side effects seen with this drug included redness, itching, or swelling at the injection site; headaches; and infections. Potentially serious reactions included chest pain, unexplained weakness, or blood in the urine.
If you experience any kind of a problem with Enbrel, however, it is best to contact your healthcare provider. Even if the reaction isn't related to Enbrel use, your healthcare provider can provide a diagnosis and treatment.
