Anyone have suggestions on how to help with morning fatigue. It has progressively gotten worse over the last couple of months. Doesn’t matter how little or how much i sleep, i wake more tired than i was when i went to sleep. Takes about 2 hours to get functioning.

Is it possible that the methotrexate is wearing off?
