Enbrel side effect?
Hi, I am a 51 yr old male how has had RA for just over a year. In the past year I have tried 3 different types of medication for RA without full success and am now starting the biologic Enbrel. Since taking this new medication I have been waking up in the middle of the night disrupting my sleep pattern. Has anyone on Enbrel noticed this? Could be possible that it's related to stress or something else as well I suppose ...not sure?

Hi synergy_man and welcome to the forum.

Enbrel. I have studied this drug; a very popular TNFa Inhibitor, by means of immunosuppression.
I was researching this to come-up with a more feasible alternative  protocol consisting of synergistic nutritional/herbal supplementation (which I completed recently)

While your  sleep disruption does not seem to be a common side effect,
it could be a combination of Enbrel and another factor such as stress perhaps that could be responsible for it.

Ask your prescribing doctor about Stelara, the newest TNFa Inhibitor biologic available if it may be more appropriate for you.
The clinical studies showed an increased efficacy and less associated
issues with lowered immunity b/c of improved targeted immunomodulation.

You may pm me directly for the natural formula, if Enbrel or Stelara or anything else your doctor may recommend, don't work well for you.

This is only my opinion and it is not meant as a substitute for medical advice.

Hope this helps.

Cheers!
Niko
