Drug InteractionsEtanercept can potentially interact with a number of medicines (see Drug Interactions With Etanercept for more information).
What If I Take an Overdose of Etanercept?The exact effects of an overdose with etanercept are not known. This is because there have been limited cases of people taking too much. In small studies, people who took large doses of etanercept did not have any problems.
(Click Enbrel Overdose for more information.)
Storage MethodsEtanercept should always be kept in its original container. Store the medication in the refrigerator (do not freeze it) and protect it from light. If you are traveling, keep etanercept in a cooler with an ice pack and do not expose it to light. You may let your etanercept dosage warm up to room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before injecting (this may help with injection pain).
Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?If you do not take your etanercept as scheduled, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose.
Generic EtanerceptThere are currently no generic versions of etanercept licensed for sale (see Generic Etanercept for more information).
