    Methotrexate is technically a chemo drug, but it's used in much lower doses for RA and isn't considered chemotherapy at that level.

      so the way it was done for her she had to go to a center and sit there for hours it was in a IV bag. She was sick and out of it for a couple days.

        I had to go in for infusions too. They gave me Rituxan through an IV and I had to sit there for about 6 hours. It worked really well for my rheumatoid arthritis, but I was concerned about side effects so stopped getting them. Luckily my arthritis seems to be in remission.
