I am on my 6 th week of MTx and had my first ads score recorded. I scored 3.8 and my rheumy nurse said she needs to get me to 2.6 to get me in remission. I hav to say i am feeling better now on the meds. Best felt in months. I am thinking do I need to keep taking MTx once I get in remission? Other question is when I get to remission will I have more pain to deal with and more flare ups.
