Enbrel is a very effective rheumatoid arthritis medicine ... and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis can be quite debilitating so only the best is needed (provided the child does not experience any serious side effects).
The link below has medicines which are used in patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (medicines will be same for juvenile idiopathic arthritis as well). Some medicines have reviews linked to them... you may find these reviews useful. The ones for Enbrel are quite positive.
