I am into my second month of injecting enbrel 50mg sure click. The last 4 injections have resulted in injection site reaction consisting of a baseball to softball size red, raised and eventually bruised area. I just gave myself an injection this morning, but I took 50mg of benadryl 1/2 hr before injecting. I am hoping this will help....prior to the last injection, I took 25mg 1/2 hr before and my reaction site was not as large. I am hoping that taking 50mg of the benadryl will help even more....anyone have any other suggestions? It is already helping my psoriasis and joint pain so I would hate to have to stop the enbrel.
The psoriasis on my legs has cleared significantly...almost able to wear shorts again.
I alternate upper thighs for
injection sites. The reaction does begin immediately, usually by the end of the day and gets progressively worse for a few days. It usually clears up in a week or so.
I would appreciate any suggestions or shared similar experiences.
