As per the website for Enbrel, www.enbrel.com: "ENBREL is a medicine that affects your immune system. ENBREL can lower the ability of your immune system to fight infections." Since it is a medication that affects your immune system and HIV/AIDs patients may have a weakened immune system, then it is best that the patient discusses it with their personal doctor to figure out if Enbrel is safe for them.

Our people are not aware about HIV/AIDS. We should study a lot about these diseases and should discuss each and every member of our families. There are many to know about it. First we have to acknowledged about HIV then the second thing is to know about what ENBREL and similar precautions effects on a body.

I think it would be better if you take advice from registered medical practitioner as HIV is a serious disease and you must consult with doctor before taking any other medicine. Doctor will check you medical history before suggesting you this medicine.
