I did use MTX for most of a year. I started at 15 mg and went up to 20. It did help and I thought I was doing well enough to stop . . . but quickly realized I needed to get back on it. It helped my fatigue and joint pain. Still had issues with the bottom of my feet. But I haven't needed the MTX in over a year . . . yeah!!!!
I hope it works well for you. I was scared of becoming nauseous when I read about
it . . . but that was never an issue for me. I was sleepy for a day or two after taking it . . . but that was really the only side affect for me. I didn't get sick any easier either.
Keep us posted.
