    methotrexate can take up to two months to kick in, so if you're still waiting for it to take full effect, talk to your doctor about medication that can help you bridge the gap like e.g., prednisone. However, if you have been on methotrexate for a while and it's no longer helping, make an appointment to see your rheumatologist to discuss treatment options. The good news is that methotrexate is on the lower rungs of the ladder of treatments for RA, so there are lots of options that can help you.
