Etanercept is given as an injection under the skin. Your doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider will give you this injection. You may be shown how to inject your medicine at home. Do not self-inject this medicine if you do not fully understand how to give the injection and properly dispose of used needles and syringes.

This medication comes with patient instructions for safe and effective use. Follow these directions carefully. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.

You may need to mix etanercept with a liquid (diluent) before using it. If you are using the injections at home, be sure you understand how to properly mix and store the medication.

A single-use prefilled syringe is for one injection only. Throw the used syringe away after one use, even if there is still medicine left in it. The prefilled Sureclick autoinjector is for use only in people who weigh 138 pounds or more.

Use a different place on your body each time you give yourself an injection. Your care provider will show you the places on your body where you can safely inject the medication. Do not inject into the same place two times in a row. Avoid injecting into skin that is bruised, tender, red, or hard.

You may have pain, redness, swelling, or warmth where the medicine was injected. Call your doctor if these symptoms continue for longer than 5 days.

Use each disposable needle only one time. Throw away used needles in a puncture-proof container (ask your pharmacist where you can get one and how to dispose of it). Keep this container out of the reach of children and pets.

Etanercept can lower blood cells that help your body fight infections. This can make it easier for you to bleed from an injury or get sick from being around others who are ill. While you are using etanercept, your blood may need to be tested on a regular basis. Do not miss any scheduled appointments.

If you need to have any type of surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are using etanercept. You may need to stop using the medicine for a short time.

If you have chronic hepatitis B you may develop liver symptoms while using etanercept and even months after you stop using it. Your doctor may want to check your liver function at regular visits for up to several months after you stop using etanercept. Do not miss any scheduled appointments.

Autoimmune disorders are often treated with a combination of different drugs. To best treat your condition, use all of your medications as directed by your doctor. Be sure to read the medication guide or patient instructions provided with each of your medications. Do not change your doses or medication schedule without advice from your doctor.

Store this medication in the refrigerator. Do not freeze. Etanercept that has been mixed with a diluent should be kept in a refrigerator and used within 14 days.

You may take the prefilled syringe or autoinjector out of the refrigerator and allow it to reach room temperature before injecting the medication.

Do not shake the prefilled syringe. Vigorous shaking can ruin the medicine. Do not use the medication if it has changed colors or appears cloudy. Call your doctor for a new prescription.

Do not use etanercept if the expiration date on the medicine label has passed.
