I have been taking methotrexate for about three years and it has helped me tremendously with my rheumatoid arthritis. It has made a world of difference for me. Very little or no pain now.

I was diagnosed with RA 2 years ago. I tried methotrexate without much relief for 8-9 months. They dosed me with a wide variety of NSAIDs along with it, but none of them helped at all. A new dr. put me on Arava, with the metho & my liver enzymes went sky high. They are still not back to normal after nearly a year with no meds at all. I just got scared away from taking anything, but wrist j ... Show Full Comment
