Hi Aspenco. I've been taking methotrexate about
1 year and the best way I can describe the benefits are it helps my overall body function more normally. My blood sugar, blood pressure, bowels, and pain are better controlled taking mtrx. I take my mtrx every Friday and spend most Saturdays in bed, but it's worth it. Welcome to our forum!
