Discussions that mention clinoril

If you do begin to having side effects from the MTX (I take seven 2.5mg tabs every Wednesday) you can start what they call MTX "rescue". The day after your weekly dose you take either folic acid or Leucovorin (both Rx strength). These meds clean your system of excess MTX, making side effects much less likely.

MTX has never worked for me by itself, I've always been on some other DMARD with it. Right now it's Orencia + MTX/folic acid + Clinoril.
