Thanks for your input, you have put me at ease about starting another new med. I have been a little frazzled this week due to alot of swelling. My rheumy believes that I have polyarthritis, osteo and RA. Is that common?
I must be one of the few who has never taken methotrexate. My rheumy skipped me right to the TNF-inhibitors. But that's only by request. I didn't want to take methotrexate because I would have had to take birth control. I'm not vehemently opposed to birth control, but battled infertility for years, and as a matter of principle I don't use birth control, just on the off chance that I could be pregnant. other than that, though, I hear good things about methotrexate. I have a feeling it will be in my future as well...
Best of luck to you!
Thanks so very much for all of your responses. I hope I have the same success as most of you have had with it. Hope you all are having a smiley day!
