There is no note of a contraindication with regards to Hepatitis C (but caution with Hepatitis B as shown below), but please confirm with your doctor.
It just says that you may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely use Enbrel if you have:
*a weak immune system;
*any type of infection including a skin infection or open sores;
*congestive heart failure;
*a nerve disorder such as multiple sclerosis, myelitis, or optic neuritis;
*epilepsy or other seizure disorder;
*asthma or other breathing disorder;
*if you have ever had hepatitis B;
*if you are allergic to latex rubber;
*if you have recently been vaccinated with BCG (Bacille Calmette-Guerin); or
*if you are scheduled to receive any vaccines.
