Comment:
I have taken this medication for almost three years and I see very little improvement in my arthritis. Although It is quite possible that if I changed doctors and found an md that actually did something other than have me come in weigh me and feel my joints then hand me pre-printed prescriptions that all he does is sign maybe I might find a little better outcome with this medication.

Comment:
Joint pain is much better, but now have tendon pain and inflammation. Side effects haven't been bad, minimal hair loss, doc prescribed 1mg Folic Acid to protect against mouth sores and haven't had any. Day after fatigue and foggy brain are bothersome but better than constant pain.
