Although a few patients with well controlled arthritis have been able to taper Enbrel to every other week, most patients seem to require Enbrel at least every 10 days. I do not think the slow healing is due to Enbrel but there are case reports of patients who have skin problems (acne, psoriasis, eczema, etc.) when starting Enbrel or the other TNF inhibitors.
