Thank you for your responses! I need to get off Methotrexate, since it caused me to have liver disease 😬.

Yes,been on it for years! Very safe and effective. Try using lotion and especially after a shower.

Works for me as well. Doctor said it is kind of the starting DMARD, so if they add or replace it, don't sweat it.

The only side effect I seem to be having is some itchiness once in a while.

I do! So far it’s working great. It takes a month of taking it before it starts helping. I also take a small amount of prednisone each day.

I have been on it for years, as well as Methotrexate. I have flair ups from time to time but overall it’s been effective.
