Product Details

Enbrel is a tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blocker that works by decreasing TNF protein production in people with autoimmune disorders. TNF is ordinarily produced by the immune system when trying to fight off infections, but in people with autoimmune disorders, their immune system produces too much, which then mistakenly attacks healthy cells. It can treat rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and prevent joint damage caused by these conditions. It is also used to treat polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis in children over the age of two and plaque psoriasis in adults and children over four.

The common side effects of Enbrel includes: pain, swelling, itching, redness at injection site, headache, cold symptoms (stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat).

The more serious side effects may include:

• Blood problems
• Lupus-like symptoms
• Nerve problems
• New or worsening psoriasis
• Signs of allergic reaction
• Signs of heart failure
• Signs of infection
• Signs of lymphoma
• Signs of tuberculosis
