Hi there, I just wanted to ask and see if anyone’s on methotrexate, and if it helps? If it’s not too personal, what are you taking it for? My doctor suspects I have AS and put me on it and I just haven’t ever met anyone on it

      I'm on methotrexate for SLE. It does help a lot, but It comes with a lot of drawbacks for me personally

      I was put on Simponi injection for AS also helps with RA. Seems to lesson the pain. Hope this helps you

      8 pills a week for RA didn’t help I quit taking them.

      I take four pills weekly for juvenile arthritis. I don’t have bad side effects as long as I take it after having a huge dinner and wait until close to bedtime before taking them. I’ve been on them for a few years now. I actually started on five pills but last year my doc and I decided we could try only four and I’ve been doing alright

        @Snwuggl Update: Just changed to 10 pills broken up into 1/2 in the morning and 1/2 at night for absorption. I have been on methotrexate for about 10 years now.

      I have been on methotrexate for a little over 2 years and I do notice a difference but make sure you are paying attention to your bodies signs

      I was on methotrexate for RA but I could not tolerate it. Gave me severe headaches and diarrhea. I was basically out of commission for a whole day after each dose.
