Enbrel is a prescription medicine called a Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) blocker that affects your immune system. Tumor necrosis factor is made by your body's immune system. People with immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, and plaque psoriasis have too much TNF in their bodies.
Enbrel is a protein and is injected (by you or someone else) just under the skin. Once you've filled your prescription, schedule a training session with your doctor's office to learn the proper techniques for self-injection. During this session, you may administer your first dose of Enbrel . You'll learn what you need to know at the doctor's office to inject Enbrel at home.
Enbrel can cause serious side effects including: Infections, including serious infections like TB; hepatitis B can become active if you already have had it; nervous system problems, such as multiple sclerosis, seizures, or inflammation of the nerves of the eyes; blood problems (some fatal); new or worsening heart failure; new or worsening psoriasis; allergic reactions; autoimmune reactions, including a lupus-like syndrome and autoimmune hepatitis.
Common side effects include: Injection site reactions, upper respiratory infections (sinus infections), and headache. In a medical study of patients with JIA, infection, headache, abdominal pain, vomiting, and nausea occurred more frequently than in adults. The kinds of infections reported were generally mild and similar to those usually seen in children. Other serious adverse reactions were reported, including serious infection and depression/personality disorder.
Enbrel is a medicine that affects your immune system. Enbrel can lower the ability of your immune system to fight infections. Serious infections have happened in patients taking Enbrel. These infections include tuberculosis (TB) and infections caused by viruses, fungi, or bacteria that have spread throughout the body. Some patients have died from these infections. Your doctor should test you for TB before you take Enbrel and monitor you closely for TB before, during, and after Enbrel treatment, even if you have tested negative for TB. There have been some cases of unusual cancers reported in children and teenage patients who started using TNF blockers before 18 years of age. Also, for children, teenagers, and adults taking TNF blockers, including Enbrel , the chances of getting lymphoma or other cancers may increase. Patients with RA and psoriasis may be more likely to get lymphoma.*The health information contained herein is provided for educational purposes only and is not intended to replace discussions with a healthcare provider.
