I have been taking Methotrexate since February 17th.  Was still really sick until two days ago.  Two days ago, I woke up early, and had energy enough to clean my house, one room at a time, but it is amaziing to me.  The rheumy took me off plaquinil. 
 
He still says that I have only Sjogren's Syndrome, and not lupus.  i let it go at that.  the most important is having a medication that will work.  and the past two days have been wonderful
 
Sorry that I have not been online much.

Hester-
Are you taking oral or injectable methotrexate? I was horribly ill from the oral dosages but experience almost no side effects from the injections.

Hester,
I'm so glad that you have found something that works! Do you have RA? I have Lupus and Sjogrens and osteoarthritis and I take plaquinil and Relafen. Right now nothing is working. I'm thrilled for you though. I pray that the good trend continues!

congratulations!  Methotrexate has been a great drug for me as well.  Plaquenil did not help me much at all.
