I am on methotrexate as I try to taper down the prednisone. 25mg meth right now a week and down to 7mg prednisone a day. I was diagnosed with pmr last December. Yes some side effectswith meth. Headache, nausea, fatigue for about a day. One day. Now at 8 months on methotrexate and the side effects are minor. Still have an off day but it’s improved every month. Worth it to get off prednisone. I’ll have to stay on meth for awhile.

I’m down to 2 mg prednisone now with help from 25 mg Methotrexate injections but really notice pain a few days before injection …the side effects of the Methotrexate only last for me the day I take it but the fatigue is easier to handle than the sore joints causing no sleep the few days before injection …looking forward to the start of Actemra
