Part 7: My Decision about Methotrexate for Rheumatoid Arthritis

My own methotrexate decision

Sometimes I think of methotrexate this way: in our war against Rheumatoid Arthritis, methotrexate cuts the enemy army down to a more manageable size. Methotrexate is a powerful weapon. I have used it because an RA warrior needs to use every weapon which proves useful.

Recently, I was questioned by someone I know who still sees the use of a chemotherapy drug for Rheumatoid Arthritis as heavy-handed. Obviously, this skeptic has not experienced severe Rheumatoid Arthritis first hand. I believe that he  fails to understand the fundamental dangers that the disease itself presents.

When all is said and done, in my estimation, it is best to fight. And if the Rheumatoid Arthritis brings its strongest weapons, we should bring ours. Often, that includes methotrexate.
