    Hi Cwille
    Looks like things haven't improved much for you. I have heard of methotrexate but have never been on it. I know its an immunosuppresnt like prednisone, often given to cancer patients on chemo. Did your dr say why she wanted to put you on it.

    my doctor said that my body was becoming use to the prednisone and that the new med he is giving is sometimes used to help people with that problem.
