I was taking methotrexate and prednisone for 5 months and then they stopped working. The Doctor upped both meds but after weeks they both stopped working.
I was put on flexeril and I thought, what? I took this for my herniated disc for about a year and it did nothing for me. My Doctor was leaving for India at the time so I could not see her before she left and this is what she prescribed to me over the phone.
Well I am suprised to say it is working. How long I don't know. The prednisone did help my back and that pain has returned along with the arthritus in my back.
I have alot of questions for my Doctor tomorrow but was curious if anyone is taking flexeril for RA and for how long and if it is working for them. I just am new at this since I was diagnosed in May. Thanks
