    I hated this drug. I felt like my limbs were not connected to my body and all I could do was curl up on the couch. I was on Celebrex at the same time. I have a very demanding job with long hours so I just quit taking everything and hope for the best with a healthy diet,and trying to stay positive. There is no rheumatologist where I live or anywhere close by so I just do the best I can on my owm.

    I am not sure about this medication, I have just finished my thrid round. ( orally - 10 mg. per week ) It seems to help me a few days - but wear off quickly.

I hope this is helpful ... Show Full Comment

    My life had become so small that our family no longer ate at the dinner table. My family would bring dinner to me in bed, because I could not sit at the table. A life without methotrexate was filled with pain, and fatique and now it's getting bigger in all the right places. Thanks!
