Methotrexate

Hi:

I'm male with RA and have been reading all of the problem comments with Methotrexate. I must be a lucky one. Two years plus and the only side effect is some extra long forearm hair. Have five fused vertebrae in neck so its not just swollen joints etc. Doing all I can to slow the progression and staying active. It could be worse and may get there, we shall see.
Stay positive and smile.
