How long does it usually take for methotrexate to bring pain down? I’m just struggling all the time without the Actemra, that I was on for over a year. I refuse to go back to double digits prednisone. As long as I’m just in pain without any life threatening stuff, I will not go above the 7ngs that I came up to when taken off Actemra. This disease is from hell. I had fibromyalgia fir 36 years but It was a walk in the park compared to this. I do follow an anti inflammatory diet and almost never eat sugar, gluten or grains. I stay thin and walk a bit. I do use a bit of honey in my tea. I was also given a script for Zoloft which I started today. I’m also very depressed but I believe the Zoloft could help the pain as well as the depression. Any suggestions for relief, but please no higher dose of prednisone. 😥
