: I was wondering if anyone can help me. My mother just started taking Methatrexate once a week, she is taking 5mg. She has R.A. Does anyone else take this amount? Or have info on anything about it? Please let me know. Thank You!
Hello, My wife takes 25mg of methatrexate once per week. It has been 4.5 years. No problems have shown up yet in her monthly blood workups. It has helped. She would be bedridden by now without it. She can walk. But it is limited to short periods because her ankles swell right away. Usually she has to spend the next day with her feet up. The drug does upset her stomach usually thru the next day. There is a new prescription stomach drug that helps alot but it is about $100/mo. She is on prednizone too.
