Subject: Methotrexate

Hi,

I was diagnosed with RA late last year and i have been taking Hydroxychloroquine sinse then.

I just recently saw my rheumatologist a couple of days ago and he prescribed me to take Methotrexate aswell. I have to take 3 of 2.5 and eventually increase it to five.
I just wanted to ask how well has it worked for any of you who use it?

Hi Tayyaba it does take a little time for your rheumy to find the right meds for your condition as we all experience Arthritis in differing ways.. It can be a bit scary in the begining. I've been on both of them but not at the same time.. they didn't do that back then. Had good result from both for a time. Now they use combination therapy and from what I've read it works better, especially for people like you who are in the early stages of the illness. take care LOLOL
