I have been taking Mtx for over 4 years and it has worked really well for me. I have the odd flare but generally i can get on with life. The worst flares are usually around this time of year.
I last saw my consultant in April he suggested that i increase my dose from 15mg to 20mg. I went home and decided against it and i am glad that i have not increased my dose and the reason i didn't is because this drug works well for me i want it to continue to for as long as possible, i am worried that if i increase the dose too soon i'll end up with nowhere to go so will only increase if absolutely, can't move for pain, necessary!
So i was wondering how long people here have been taking mtx before the effects start to wear off or stop altogether and what are the maximum dosages that people take?
