How long to take ENBREL®

You should continue to inject ENBREL for as long as your doctor recommends.

Never inject more than the dose recommended by your doctor.

If you feel that the effect of ENBREL is too strong or too weak, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

 

If you forget to take it

If you forget to give yourself or your child an injection, you should inject the next dose as soon as you remember if it is within 48 hours since the scheduled dose time. If it is more than 48 hours since the last dose was due, wait for the next scheduled dose.

Do not use a double dose to make up for the dose that you missed. If you are not sure what to do, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

If you have trouble remembering to use your medicine, ask your pharmacist for some hints.

 

If you take too much (overdose)

Immediately telephone your doctor or the Poisons Information Centre (in New Zealand; tel 0800 POISON or 0800 764 766), or go to Accident and Emergency at your nearest hospital, if you think that you or anyone else may have used too much ENBREL. Do this even if there are no signs of discomfort or poisoning. Always take the labelled medicine carton with you, even if it is empty.

You may need urgent medical attention. There is very limited data on overdose with ENBREL. Ask your doctor if you have any concerns.
