I am on methotrexate and it doesnt seem like its made any change yet.
I have had no real side effects. At my doc's recommendation, I have been taking folic acid to help counter any side effects. If you are taking oral methotrexate, take the folic acid (B vitamin) at the at the opposite time of day as the methotrexate since they compete with each other.
I hurst went back on. How are you taking it? Injection or pill? I think it took a month for me to realize I felt better. I was so used to some pain it was amazing. I had incredible fatigue (yes, worse that usual) and some nausea. They get better with fime.psin relief was great. I hope it works for you.
Hi I was on Methotrexate for about 2 years it thinned out my hair and didn't really do much for me. I am totally off all RA meds. Just on some pain meds. I see my Rheumy on April 23rd. I think I am going back on the Actemra infusions. Once a month I.V. treatment for 3 hours. Just makes me sleepy afterwords but over all this is the one I felt this best on.
I had results in a few weeks. I also started on a low dose, and my rheumatologist gradually increased the dose, small amounts, till I felt better. If you have no positive response tell your doctor.
