    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 in quite bad shape when I started it. I was taking eight 2 1/2 milegrams of it and just about a month ago the doctor suggested that I see if I could get along with only six of the pills per week. I have ... Show Full Comment

    I have used mxt for 2 years. Other than the fear of all the side effects, mxt has worked well for me along with Enbrel. I currently haven't had any side effects. I'm taking (8)2.5 mg once a week.

    I've been diagnosed with RA for over 10 years now and have been on and off of methotrexate a couple of times. Currently, I've been on it for 1.5 years and am having moderate success with it. However, it does make me tired and nauseated on the day that I take it. And it hasn't completely made me pain free or fatigue free from the RA. However, because of other medical conditions it i ...

    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
