Brenzys How to Take

Brenzys (Etanercept) belongs to the class of medications called biological response modifiers ("biologics") or tumour necrosis factor inhibitors (TNF blockers). It is used to treat active ankylosing spondylitis and moderate-to-severe Rheumatoid Arthritis in adults.

People with these conditions produce extra amounts of proteins called tumour necrosis factor (TNF), causing pain, inflammation, and damage. Brenzys (Etanercept) works by blocking the production of TNF and reducing inflammation in the joints. The benefits of using Brenzys (Etanercept) may be seen as early as one week after the start of treatment in adults, with the full effect usually achieved by 3 months.

Brenzys (Etanercept) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Brenzys (Etanercept) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Brenzys (Etanercept) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Brenzys (Etanercept) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Brenzys (Etanercept), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Brenzys (Etanercept) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Brenzys (Etanercept) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to use Brenzys (Etanercept) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

The recommended dose of Brenzys (Etanercept) is 50 mg injected subcutaneously (under the skin), once a week. It is usually injected in the front of the thigh or abdomen.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are using the medication without consulting your doctor.

Single-use pre-filled syringes and autoinjectors should be stored in the refrigerator at 2°C to 8°C, protected from light, and kept out of the reach of children. Do not freeze or shake. Remove the medication from the refrigerator 30 minutes before administering the injection. This will allow it to warm to room temperature before injecting.

Brenzys Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Brenzys (Etanercept).

Bleeding: Brenzys (Etanercept) can cause a reduced number of platelets in the blood, which can make it difficult to stop cuts from bleeding. If you notice any signs of bleeding, such as frequent nosebleeds, unexplained bruising, or black and tarry stools, or blood or material that looks like coffee grounds in vomit, notify your doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor will order routine blood tests to make sure potential problems are caught early.

Cancer: Very rarely, people taking Brenzys (Etanercept) and similar medications have developed Leukemia or lymphoma, types of blood cancer. In general, people with rheumatoid arthritis or psoriasis who take medications that suppress the immune system over long periods of time may have a higher risk of developing lymphoma, even if they don't take Brenzys (Etanercept). Avoid using Brenzys (Etanercept) in combination with Cyclophosphamide. This combination may increase the risk of developing certain types of cancer.

There may be a slightly increased risk of developing Melanoma (a type of Skin Cancer). Report any unusual growths on your skin to your doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor will monitor you for skin cancer while you are taking Brenzys (Etanercept). Talk to your doctor if you have any concerns.

Diabetes: Brenzys (Etanercept) may cause a decrease in blood sugar levels and glucose tolerance may change. People with diabetes may find it necessary to monitor their blood sugar more frequently while using Brenzys (Etanercept).

If you have diabetes or are at risk for developing diabetes, discuss with your doctor how Brenzys (Etanercept) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Brenzys (Etanercept), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Heart failure: Brenzys (Etanercept) may worsen Congestive Heart Failure. If you have heart failure, talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of using Brenzys (Etanercept). Symptoms to watch for include swelling of the feet and ankles and shortness of breath. If you notice these symptoms, contact your doctor immediately.

Hepatitis B: People infected with hepatitis B virus (an infection that can damage the liver) may have a relapse of their condition while taking Brenzys (Etanercept). If you are at risk for hepatitis B, your doctor may test you for this infection before starting treatment with Brenzys (Etanercept) and will follow your condition closely while you are taking the medication. If you notice symptoms of liver problems, such as abdominal pain, yellow eyes or skin, loss of appetite, fatigue, or dark urine, contact your doctor immediately.

Infections: Brenzys (Etanercept) can increase the risk of developing an infection, including serious infections such as sepsis, Chickenpox, fungal infections, and Tuberculosis. Before starting Brenzys (Etanercept) treatment, your doctor may test to see if you have tuberculosis.

Brenzys (Etanercept) should also not be started while you have an active infection. Brenzys (Etanercept) should not be used in combination with Anakinra or Abatacept, as these medications can increase the risk of severe infection.

Tell your doctor if you have a history of infections that keep coming back, or other conditions that might increase your risk of infections (e.g., diabetes) or have visited or lived in areas where there is a greater risk of certain kinds of fungal infection (e.g., blastomycosis). While you are taking Brenzys (Etanercept), your doctor will monitor you for signs of infection.

Nervous system: Brenzys (Etanercept) may cause or worsen nervous system disorders. If you have a history of nervous system disorders, such as seizure disorders or Multiple Sclerosis, discuss with your doctor how Brenzys (Etanercept) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Brenzys (Etanercept), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you experience numbness or tingling, weakness in your arms or legs, dizziness, or vision changes while taking Brenzys (Etanercept), contact your doctor immediately.

Vaccines: Vaccines (e.g., yellow fever, BCG, Cholera, typhoid, varicella, meningococcal, diphtheria) should not be given while you are taking Brenzys (Etanercept). Children with JIA should complete the recommended vaccination schedule before receiving their first dose of Brenzys (Etanercept).

Pregnancy: Brenzys (Etanercept) crosses the placenta and may affect the developing baby if it is used by the mother during pregnancy. For this reason, Brenzys (Etanercept) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Brenzys (Etanercept), contact your doctor immediately.
