The best thing to do is to talk it over with your doctor as to when to start Enbrel again. You will want to make sure the infection is gone before going back on Enbrel, since medicines like Enbrel work on the immune system and may affect the body's ability to defend itself against an infection.
You can also get other information on Enbrel and infections from the company that makes Enbrel by calling 1-888-436-2735.
