I am on both MTX and weekly humira. I can say, it is helping my arthritis more than it is the UC. No side effects with the humira, but it does take a while for you to get used to the methotrexate. Key to it is, is to take it right before you go to bed, so you sleep most of the side effects away. You still wake up with the feeling of a hang over though. It does get better in time, so hang in there.
