don't know what NHRA stands for but here goes
I was diagnosed with RA 3 weeks ago and am currently taking 4, 2.5 mg tablet of methatrexate at once, one day a week. I will be taking my 4th dose tomorrow. It has helped a lot although I didn't start to feel any effects til this week. I had 2 flare ups before this and took the 6 day pack of prednilisone. That stuff was wonderful because nothing hurt, not even my knees that I have osteoarthritis in. I see my RA doctor this coming week. Had my blood work done this past week so I hope everything is good so I can continue with the MTX. By the way, I didn't experience any of the side effects, thank God.
