Hi Rachel,

If you live in England then unfortunately yes, we have to pay for our meds :( The best thing i advise to do is look at getting your husband a medical prescription card for the year, they cost 104 per year at the mo, it saves money for a start depending how many meds he's on and just makes life so much easier by not having to think about paying out each month

Hope this helps :)

Hi,
If the only prescription you have to get is Methotrexate then get it on private prescription approx 4. Word of warning though go to a small local chemist to get unbranded tablets (eg if you buy Neurofen it is more expensive than Ibuprofin, same thing though) Branded Methotrexate is very expensive!!
