Psoriatic Arthritis Symptoms
Common psoriatic arthritis symptoms include:
- Swelling of an entire finger or toe, which sometimes can cause the fingers or toes to look like sausages
- General joint pain, stiffness, and swelling
- Back pain and stiffness (lower back, neck, and upper back)
- Raised, red patches, often with a silvery scale (known as psoriatic skin lesions)
- Changes in the nails: pitting is seen in the fingernails and toenails of 90% of people with psoriatic arthritis
Take a few minutes to create a symptom profile that you can print and share with your dermatologist or rheumatologist. The profile may help you and your doctor better understand your symptoms. It may also help you start a conversation about the right treatment option for you.
Please see Prescribing Information, Important Safety Information, and Medication Guide for complete details about ENBREL.
Prescription ENBREL is taken by injection.
ENBREL is indicated for reducing signs and symptoms, keeping joint damage from getting worse, and improving physical function in patients with psoriatic arthritis. ENBREL can be used in combination with methotrexate in patients who do not respond adequately to methotrexate alone.
- ENBREL was shown to be effective in about 50% of patients at 6 months. Clinical responses were apparent at the time of the first visit (4 weeks) and were maintained through 6 months of therapy.
