Medication Question

Medication Question

I want to know if Methotrexate is helping any of you. Does it relieve your inflammation to ease your pain? Just on Methotrexate alone, not with another Med.
Thank you so much.

I am on 30 mg but the injection-able Rasuvo itโ€™s working much better than the pills! I also take Remicade(infusion) prednisone(5-20 mg and Mobic! This combination has helped me!

Hello I take Methotrexate 7.5MG per week. I find it helps me. My weight and blood pressure is checked every 3 months. They also take blood to ensure my organs etc are OK. I hope it helps you.

Hello. Sorry I should have mentioned that I take 5MG of Folic acid two days before the metho. Apparently it helps me to absorb the metho. Best wishes. Lynne
