Not at all. It is not a pain reliever. It is a DMARD - Disease Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drug. You should view it as an 'anti-cancer' drug in that your use needs to be monitored with blood tests to make sure it is not sending you down a hole that emergency medicine cannot pull you out of.

I've also been prescribed Methotrexate for treatment. I have psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis - among other things! I've taken the pills and self-injections. I cannot tolerate it!!! Within 2 days of the dose, my tongue swells with sore bumps on it and my mouth also gets the painful bumps. The corner of my mouth cracks and bleeds. I cannot tolerate it. It also made me lose hair and it still has not grown back! Good luck to anyone who is prescribed this medication.

Yes and it’s a terrible drug. After I was on it for the hundredth time I got sick to my stomach and went through some bad days. Then when I stopped it my skin got worse.

Hi Art515, yes I have a 7 year old Bichon Frise who picks things up and will get slippers and pj's for me. He rides on my gopher in the basket with sunnies and hat. He is a bit of a celebrity when we go to shops. I have to allow time for stops. He is my 3rd child to be honest. He knows by my breath if I am in pain and ever so gentle. I have never trained him it's instinct. I am sure many of you know what I am saying.

I have been on Methotrexate for 6yrs now, and yes I would prefer not to take it but it's not a choice I have. It works with the DMARDs to slow progression. My hair has thinned but I have a short cut with purple tips to compensate. At almost 70 it's important to look your best even if your in pain. I take it once a week. Hope that helps.
