Working (after rocky start)
Backstory: Enbrel Not Overpowering a Raptiva Rebound, Nov. 2006, from Jane J.
Hi Ed: This is Jane J. again. It's now September 11, 2007 and I had my first Enbrel shot one year ago tomorrow. I give myself the injection once a week. And if it works, even at my co-pay of $150.00 per month, I'll stay on it forever!
It took about 2 1/2 months before I finally saw improvement in my horrible, hurting skin but if you saw me now you wouldn't know I even have psoriasis.
Everything is clear, from the top of my head to the bottoms of my feet. Every day I wonder when it will stop working. Then I worry that thinking about it will trigger a flare up. Every time I have an itch anywhere, I worry.
But I am enjoying the total freedom while it lasts.
I wish it would work this well on everyone.
I'll keep you posted. –Jane J.
*****Ed’s Response: Thanks for the update, Jane. I love good news and you sure deserved a break. -Ed
