Wonder if you might help.

I am currently struggling with a symptom or two which may/may not be due to Etanercept. Wonder if you would mind listing any symptoms you may have had which have obliged you to discontinue its use..

I won't declare my symptoms just yet.

Thank you

Hi


I had to stop it because I couldn't sleep at night and had an increased appetite, which caused me to be diabetic.

Well yes, enbrel has caused the rare side effect of kleptomania. Can't seem to stop pilfering goods I really don't need. Thus far, have not been caught but if that happens, will switch to another drug.

Hope that's not the side effect you're experiencing. And hope you're able to continue taking it because after all, you discovered enbrel.

I think that is what Michelle is on. She has been on it forever. She was in the trials for it. I hope they aren't to bad Alan. Hows your Mod job application going?

Ahh well know it isnt the cause of kleptomania as i was a great big thief years before Enbrel but in your case, have you thought of surrendering yourself to the authorities, admitting your massive guilt and 'copping a plea'!!!

yes when I discovered it i was only able to ascertain its causality apropos black swamp fever, typhoid and the dreaded lurgie...........my grim symptoms are none of those though and anyway you would have thought its discovery would have been accompanied by a side effects leaflet...............oh discovering new things can be so difficult........

Alan, I am sorry to hear that Enbrel may be causing some problems for you. Enbrel was my miracle drug for several years. It worked very well for me until it just stopped. No warning, no slow decrease in effectiveness - BOOM - it just stopped. My doctor switched me to Remicade and it too has worked well. We have had to tweak Remicade over they years - without MTX, then with - slowly increasing dosage, etc.

I far as I remember, no kleptomania on either drug. Perhaps a bit of forgetfulness though...

I hope whatever is going on with you is easily resolved.

Thank you stormy i am grateful for your always thoughtful and considered observations (Not like the Klepto-shoe who is generally wappy..!)

oh.........errrr

Won't allow me to have Remicade here, some rule relating to age of onset, because I am ancient, seems that I don't need it, it tends, apparently, to be reserved for new spondy's. I can have Humira I think, but will have to wait until May when I see Rheumatology people.

In the meantime I am going to miss out a few injections and see if there is any impact on my current errrr.............discomfort, shall we call it.......yay.... thank you
