Enbrel and Rituxan Medicine Question

Met with my rheumatologist yesterday-- she added an injection of Enbrel to my medicine regiment. She said that Enbrel is actually for Arthritis patients but that in a small percentage of Lupus patients, adding it along with the methotrexate injection, prednisone, plaquinil, etc... was successful. My actual DX is Systemic Lupus with Sjogrens disease.
The Dr. said that honestly she didn't expect much success for me with this medicine and actually wants to put me on Rituxan but that we can not get to that without trying Enbrel for 3 or 4 months.
Has anyone taken either Enbrel or Rituxan? How did you do with them?
Thanks for sharing any information!
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
