I just had an appointment with my rheumy today and I also asked for clarification on this question. I have had a terrible time staying on Enbrel due to recurrent sinus infections.
Her advise to me was to keep using the Enbrel with a cold and even if I have a sinus infection. She sure shocked me. Her advise was to go to doctor and get antibiotic if I suspect sinus infection, but to continue my Enbrel injections. She said to stop the injections temporarily if after treatment with the antibiotic, I didn't feel like I was getting any better.
I'm not sure if this is what I'd advise anyone else, I just know that I've not been able to get the full benefit of Enbrel due to stopping and starting. I'm determined to give Enbrel my best shot this time and will not stop using it unless I feel really sick.
Hope this helps.
