  • Perceived effectiveness for RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis): Major
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Advice & Tips: My reumatologist suspects methrotrexate could cause my lung problems, accordingly she redused my dose from 9 to 6 pills. After approx 5 month, I still have pains in my chest. So I need to find out if chest pains will go away if I quit methrotrexate all together. The RA pains will increese, but this is nessesary.
