Wow that's long I'm always scared of taking it for so long. Are you in on and off or you've been taking it non stop? I just stop now because I can't buy new more haha but I'm applying some ointment hope it will help me.

I'm new to methotrexate. My mom has rheumatoid arthritis and has taken it (changing dosage slightly) for almost 30 years. I don't notice anything different other than heightened concern about my suppressed immune system during a global pandemic.

Hi Mark; so does the the big M keep your P under control? My Derm has been pushing me towards this for a few years now. My other go-to's are failing. I've been avoiding this for about 8 years now. Since the very beginning of my first outbreak. My first Derm said under no circumstances take that. I don't have him anymore because I had to go to treatment as an emergency and my Dr changed. I've been told I have to have a liver biopsy every 3 months if I take it.... don't like the idea of that....
