  10:14 PM — Remicade and Enbrel?
Does anyone here have experience with the drugs infliximab (Remicade®) or etanercept (Enbrel®)? As you may have seen from previous posts, I have a skin condition called hidradenitis suppurativa, or HS. (If you google it, expect some disturbing photos.) After having a flare-up (thankfully minor) while on a pseudo-honeymoon in London, I decided enough was enough already, and today I discussed treatment options with my dermatologist.

If you've had any experience w/ Remicade/Enbrel, for any condition but especially HS, I'd appreciate your input! :)

accutane. Don't do it! I have a friend who took it for an extended time in her late teens/early 20s. She is in her upper 20s now, long off the drug, and she is STILL having major problems. Basically, her reproductive organs are very damaged, long-term, from the drug. She's had to have several surgeries, and now she wants to have kids, but it moght not be possible, and it is risky--high chance of birth defects and complications.

i will write more later, i am on a handheld,hard to type.
