  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Side effects
    Severe (liver failure (acute))
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This stuff is vicious! One thing I do have to say for it is that I have not had to shave my underarms since I was on it. My leg hair also grows back much more slowly than it used to. It almost killed my liver. My driver's license photo was taken while I was on Methotrexate and everyone who sees the photo comments on how yellow I looked. I did bounce back from the bad effects fairly quickly after stopping the meds.
Cost: $50-99 monthly
