I know this topic has been covered before but could everyone send me a reply containing how much methotrexate you take, whenyou take it, and it is it oral or shot.  Do you take any other biologic?  If so, what?  And what have youy tried?
I'd really appreciate your answers.  I believe there's strength in numbers.  Thank you!

.7 ml injectable (17.5 mg equivalent I believe) once a week right before bed, Remicade (every 8 weeks, moving to every 6 weeks) and 2 mg Folic Acid daily. Formerly on Enbrel, worked great with the MTX, but it didn't do anything for my Crohn's, hence the switch to Remicade.

Hi

I have RA and was on Metho. 8 pills a week for 2 years, my doc. took me off cause of low counts, went on Enbrel, didnt work, then Humira, poss. allergy. Im  only on 25 mg. pred. a day, waiting for Iowa City dr. to give me a new drug idea.

Good luck!!

Previous meds-Methotrexate,(killed my immune system for 2 years) Enbrel,(didnt work) Humira, Ibuprofen, Arava,(allergic to?) Prednisone, Folic Acid.
Now only on Prednisone because of an allergic reaction they can't figure out, so Im heading to U.of I hospitals and clinics in Sept. for testing, new meds!? Who knows, who cares! Just want off steroids so I can lose weight.
