Enbrel vs. Humira

Has anyone gotten relief from Humira when Enbrel did not work?

  1. I just switched from enbrel to humira. Humira worked really well for 9 years till this past month.

    1. discgman,

      Thanks for your support and for writing in our forums.
      We are sorry to hear that Humira has stopped working for you. We hope your rheumatologist can get you on something that can work as well as Humira did for 9 years. Please reach out if you need information and support.

      Thanks for being part of our community.

    1. I have gotten relief but feel that I need to take it once every week instead of every two weeks.

      1. Thanks Lauren. I am still flaring up after Humira stopped working. Four weeks of enbrel and no relief. Flareups are the worse ive had in a while. Shoulders, feet, hands, wrists and knees. I can only get some relief from the presidone taper. I had to get more of due to latest issues. Rumy dr says to give enbrel more time so I bought another 4 weeks supply. Hate to keep switching but if it doesnt work why bother. At least humira started to work soon after I took meds.
