Methatrexate Use Long Term

Methatrexate Use Long Term

Haven't been back to my Rheumatologist since COVID. Took myself off methatrexate as I was having my blood monitored. I fear being on it long term. What have those of you who have been on it experienced?

I started enbrel 3 months ago but not better yet? Before that I was on Orencia for 9 months with no success. Anyone know how long enbrel takes to start working?

I have faith in my Rheumatologist. I tried to make do with Methotrexate, it wasn’t enough. Started Enbrel. Good so far.

I’m on it but after 6 years I’m thinking it’s not working as well as it did.

Meds prescribed by my Rheumatologist, methotrexate(6 years) and Enbrel since July. Prednisone as needed. Labs every three months. No joint damage so far, prefer no joint replacements.

I would say routine blood work to check levels. Make sure meds aren't messing with liver or kidney functions.
