Methotrexate works. Even better with Humeria

Same here, since my rheumatologist put me on both methotrexate and folic acid since February for my aching joints (was diagnosed last September) every day, been working great with no side effects. Watch your diet..

I've taken methotrexate and folic acid for several months with no side effects. It has really helped me, Enbrel alone wasnt enough and I had to get off the steroids. Give it a try, you might be surprised with the results.

Give it a try but make sure they write a rx for folic acid and it's wise to take a B complex supplement as it helps in processing folic acid. I tried methotrexate be it wasn't tolerated well but others handle it. You'll feel sluggish coming off steroids so B complex will help a little with that. Please note I'm not a Dr but simply do a lot of research when given a new med for RA. I'm a nerd like that.

I was on MTX injections for two years and it did nothing for me, so my rheumatologist just stopped it. I was also on Cimzia injections and it did not work either.
