That's good news. I hope you do as well on it as I have. I have taken mxt for 19 years without any problems and it has changed my life. It won't work overnight though. It does take a few weeks to kick in. Good luck.

I am very happy for you and hope that MTX will give you relieve from the RA symptoms. MTX was my first drug, apart from steroids and I never had any serious side effects. Fingers crossed for you.

I had the same feelings of happiness and apprehension. Iโ€™m fairly new on MTX but have started to see some changes in how I feel. I still get very tired the day after the medication though. So donโ€™t be alarmed. And please take care of yourself xxx

Thinking of you and hope that all goes well for you with the MTX. It can take a while to become fully effective but know many people who MTX works really for them and hope this is how it is for you too. x
