    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    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.
