I am using the 50mg prefilled syringe once weekly. What can be done about the burning? Does icing the site prior to injection help?
Try to administer the medicine really slowly, that may reduce the burning sensation.
Bruising or swelling (burning is probably part of it) is a side effect of Enbrel injections, if it is really bothersome please see your doctor.
