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. My side effects include headaches, occasional nausea, extreme fatigue. I've been on a range of medications and my experience has been that if you don't see results within 3-6 months, move on to something else. If your doctor refuses, find another docto ...

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. I don't like the side effects but they're necessary for the help it gives me and not as bad as how I would be without it. I'm tired all the time and have hair loss (and I'm only 21).

Comment:
I really dislike the hair thinning. It is more thinning than loss. Fatigue is major side effect. I think the shot of depomedrol that I get 3 times a year helps the best. Not sure if I want to stay on this long term. Pain in joints has decreased but not sure if I really need this long term.
