Methotrexate

Methotrexate

Can anyone let me know their experiences with Methotrexate?

I was on it several years ago for about 2 years and it did help. I was put on it again several months ago and could not tolerate it - severe nausea. Now I'm on Arava - really helped my joint pain.

Took it by injection for over 10 years. Terrible nausea! 2 days a week sick - but it did help. Went off it a year and a half ago to try to get pregnant and yes, I'm feeling more pain, yes, my blood work looks a lot worse. BUT I will never go back on it if I can help it, so happy to be free of my bed 2 days a week!
