Count me in! I have done 5 shots, with 3 of them having site reactions. Mine are huge hand sized red, raised and sometimes purple areas. One took over two weeks to competely go away, but I had to do the injecction on that thigh b/c the other size was done the week before. I took 2 benedryl and that really took the hardness and swelling down. But not completely and benedryl makes me tired...something I don't need.
I have allergies though and have done shot therapy and the reactions are the same, only my shot therapy were small doses gradually increased, so the reactions only lasted a couple days. With enbrel it's taking weeks to fully go away. I am assuming, like shot therapy, that I will get acclumated to it and build up a tolerance to it and should eventually stop.
I took an allegra last night though, seems to help it not grow. But man it looks funny to have all these read patches all over my thighs.
You can contact me anytime if you want to compare notes. I'm trying to keep it from getting so bad to begin with by taking benedryl before the shot, but it makes me sooo groggy the next morning and I already take a sleep aid.
