I had no side effects when on the methotrexate except a little more hair loss. It was starting to help but my blood work showed kidney & liver issues. They just took me off and bloodwork is improving but my pain & stiffness is returning.

I’ve been on methotrexate in the past. The pils didn’t do much for me but the injections really did help. After 2 1/2 to 3 years, I developed a chronic cough so I was taken off of it.

@A myRAteam Member,
I personally could not tolorate Methotrexate.
Now, having said that, there are many people that Methotrexate has helped for years. Make sure to discuss adding FolicAcid, to off set some of the side effects.
May I suggest that you keep a journal of date and the good or bad reactions to medication that you can share with your Rheumatologist.
I hope this helps.
