My doctor wants me to try Orencia, but I'm not certain the Enbrel isn't still working. I have concerns about trying a totally different medication.

Starting to develop a fairly florid reaction to my underwear so I suspect it is due to the latex?
From this study (1 month ago):
Wake up nightly sweating. Never was much of a sweater. Now I am sweating nightly. Finished with menopause for over two years.
