Anyone use methotrexate?

Does methotrexate get worse before it gets better?

I read it can take 3 to 6 weeks.

    Hi @moosebrew,

    I have been taking methotrexate since April 2018. Unfortunately I can’t remember if my PsA got worse before it got better, but it certainly didn’t get better for quite some time. It is really helping my pain now though but it did take a while ! With regards to side effects, they have definitely improved over time. Are you thinking of starting methotrexate?

    In case you are interested, there’s quite a lot of discussion of methotrexate over on our Treatment Issues forum: https://psoriatic-arthritis.com/forum/treatment-issues/
