I am to start this medication next week but a visiting nurse is to come and show me how. It is a needle in a pen type thing. My first dosage is two whole pens I think. This is to be injected in the stomach or upper thigh I think. I need to reread and go over it with her. I hope some of the people comment on here so I can read also their experiences.

At least you have the convention and some extra R&R time off to look forward to!

Dawn, I take an Embrel shot once a week for my RA and yes, it does have a "bite" to it as it is being injected. But, I feel so much better since I started using it that I just put up with it. It comes in a prefilled "pen" and I inject it myself. Ilike the pen because it only takes a few minutes to administer and then you are on your way where as the IV form you have to go to the dr. office and I think it takes about 3 hours to infuse. (I may be wrong on that) Also, I don't know what the cost for Humira is, but Embrel is really expensive. I just thank my lucky stars that I have good med. insurance. Good luck.
