Comment:
I had been taking the pills for almost 2 1/2 years. With very little results the pain was just a constint thing. Most days I just wanted to stay in bed I hurt so much. I talked to my Dr about changing to injectable and she thought it would be a good idea. I have only been taking it for about a month now and am so happy with the results. I am stiff in the morning but after a shower I feel grea ... Show Full Comment

hair loss, nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite (not bad thing I guess, I'm overweight anyways). I still have pain and swelling in my left hand. Very little flare ups, so far. Much of the pain and swelling is gone. I've been on the weekly shots for 5 weeks.

I have been using Methotrexate injections for two months now and having the best results ever. I feel so much better and can do so many more activities than before, I have no pain in all my joints and what a relief.

Comment:
I was diagnosed with RA over 12 years ago. I've been injecting methotrexate for several years. I take ibuprophen and Tramedol for inflammation and pain. I also supplement with folic acid and Vit D. I have my liver function tested on a regular schedule and have been very satisfied with the way my deterioration has slowed almost to a stop. I am very active and healthy!

Comment:
Was on pills for 2 years and now on injections for almost 1 year. The usual minor side effects with both pill/injections, but I feel great and have been pain free the entire time I've been on this. Have had to increase my folic acid due to mouth sores. Have found that taking Biotin daily really helps with the hair thinning/loss! Take care all!
