Hi Hippi, I post here and on the fibromyalgia forum
I started taking methotrexate in April. I take it on Mondays right after I have finished my
evening meal. I am lucky that I never had any bad side effects. My bloodwork is monitored
closely and one time my liver enzymes were elevated slightly, but went down by the next
Honestly I can't say I have seen any noticable differance since I started taking it. I
started at 10mg. My rheumy lowered it to 7.5 mg after he put me on Savella, med I
take for fibromyalgia. I have been flaring, so I don't know what is up.
Initially I was nervous about
starting the MTX, there is always a risk with any med you take,
but it helps to know they monitor you closely while you are on it.
Hope it works for you
