It's been 10 weeks since beginning once weekly injections of Enbrel. Constant sneezing and runny nose are main symptoms. No congestion. I do not normally have allergies or colds.

I looked this med up in wikipedia.org because I thought i remebered the commercial for it that i saw on tv warned frequent infections might occur. RA is considered a form of antoimmune disease and it causes inflammation, the Enbrel works by attempting to reduce the inflammation but it also is an immunosuppressant, therefore your immune system is suppressed and can't fight off the infections. Please report your symptoms to the dr who rx'ed this to you.
