I have been taking Enbrel for 2 years for psoriatic arthritis. It has worked phenomenally; however, over the past 4 months I have developed acne on my abdomen and to a lesser degree on my legs. I have never had acne of any sort my entire life (age 56).
Just to let you know that Angela S. is not the only one who experienced this.
Ed’s Response: Thanks for writing, Michael. Evidence mounts about this rare side effect of Enbrel. Once again, I checked the Enbrel prescribing information for any mention of acne as an adverse reaction. The closest I could come (understanding my comprehension of medical terminology is scant) is “urticaria” which, I believe, is hives.
Thanks for adding your experience to the archives here. –Ed
