I have been taking this for almost a year and it has been like a miracle. I have RA for about 10 years. My hands and feet were starting to get deformed.I was always in pain 24/7. No energy what so ever from my body fighting the pain. My Rheumatologist started me on Methotrexate and the deformities are about 70% gone.

I've been on MTX for 1-1/2 months. I discontinued use of prednisone 2 weeks ago. My symptoms seem to be gradually worsening again.

Comment:
I've been on this medication for several years now. I stopped it once but my symptoms came back rapidly. In my case it does not work on its own and I take it with enbrel.
