Can I Still Get Ra Flare-ups While Using Methotrexate?

Answer

Hello, Tella,

I have read a lot of posts from people who have flares while on MTX and/or other RA drugs. You really need to call your doctor and let him/her know what is going on. It seems they often prescribe prednisone to help get people through flares, but your doctor needs to know what you are experiencing. He/she may need to adjust your medication. Sorry to hear you are flaring. Hopefully, a community member who has been through this will stop by and offer his/her experience with flares.

Best Wishes,

V
