    Anyone on methotrexate?
    kathlyn1980 posted:
    Just got put on weekly doses of methotrexate and I am wondering how others are doing on it.

    For RA? MTX isn't used for FM, so I'm assuming you have RA. Most people do quite well with it. The dose is so low that one doesn't develop the standard side effects common to MTX at standard levels.

    Dear Kathlyn, I agree with Sharon re methotrexate and RA....many of us on the board have multiple dx...I am a lupus, arthritis, and fm patient, myself. Audrey

    Sorry, I should've clarified that. I also have Atypical Spondiloarthropathy. I don't think I spelled that right.
