Response to New Here and so glad to find this
but hope that you can get some support. Sorry to hear your dd has to go through this. Are you seeing a pediatric rheumatologist? Sounds like you haven't been on the MTx long enough to see if it is being effective. I was told it takes about 6 months to get into the system and to really see if it works.
My dd has been on the oral dosage & hasn't had to go to the injections yet. thank goodness.
You might want to ask your doctor how long she should try the oral dosage before noticing any improvement
Hang in there. They have come a long way although much more needs to be done.
