Thank you for your reply, John. I appreciate the Pub Med article on methotrexate use with prednisone. The addition of methotrexate to my med “cocktail” was to, of course, get off prednisone. In fact, I am now taking 2 mg. more than when I started methotrexate. I guess another question is whether
people with a lengthier case of PMR have seen doctors at the Mayo Clinic (or other prestigious clinic) for a second opinion…and what was their experience.
