In brief: Yes

Enbrel (etanercept) does have value in other disorders so I have recommended its use in diseases not on your list.

As regards your follow up question, I have no idea why Enbrel was recommended unless you know the specific diagnosis for which it was prescribed. When in doubt, get another opinion.
