Is there a difference in humira and enbrel (etanercept) treatment of psoriasis?

No great... No great differences. Enbrel (etanercept) is once weekly and Humira is once every two weeks. They have similar efficacy in large trials, but differences exist between individuals! both should be tried only after Methotrexate therapy has failed!

Was on humira (adalimumab) weekly&psoriasis came back. Now on enbrel&25mg methotraxte. Do u think psorias will clear? Y did humira (adalimumab) stop working? Stress overpower it?

Both work. It's your these medicines are effective. The reason medication stop working may depend on many factors. Sometimes the body develops resistance to a medication that is working fine. The resistance can occur because of antibodies against the drug. It can also occur because the mechanism of the disease of the illness can change differently at the molecular level.

Enbrel (etanercept) 50 mg sq x 3 months for RA + psoriasis. Very little improvement. Any downside to increasing to enbrel (etanercept) 50 mg sq twice weekly? Mtx not tolerated.

No real downside. Tnf inhibitors like Enbrel don't increase in toxicity like other meds do. Increasing the dose to 50mg twice weekly is a good idea.But, if you don't also take methotrexate, for any reason, you will be more likely to develop antibodies against the Enbrel and neutralize it--causing it to lose most or all effectiveness.If increasing Enbrel does not work, consider another med like Humira or remicade (infliximab).
