I am sorry to say that I had to stop Methotrexate because of side effect that caused me to have really dark depression. this side effect is rare however, so probably you will not have it.
EXcept for that depression, methotrexate was wonderful. especially not having the lupus fog, no diarrhea, had so many good days, it was wonderful.
