Hello! I am new to this forum but not new to RA. Diagnosed three years ago, I wanted to ask others about their routines and prescription patterns. I have bloods now every three months, but only 4 weeks of MTX. I know others that are prescribed a few months worth. The inconvenience is my main frustration...does anyone else have this problem?

    Hi and welcome from me too.

    I've been on methotrexate for years and only ever been given a month's supply at a time. Except, when going away for a month, then I've had two month's. I'm fairly sure this is standard practice. All DMARDS are very strong meds and I don't think they want extra ones at large. Is it a problem for you? Where I live I can order online and then get my prescriptions delivered if I wish.
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.
