I was on mtx for about 4 months last year-no side effects in fact I felt no different after having taken it but unfortunatly it did not help me either.
I was originally on imuran then mtx and now I am on cellacept-I go in next week to see if this is working (elevated ds dna levels)

For me it upset my stomach and made mme feel kind of yucky for about 24 hours but only for the first few weeks. After that it was just another medicine. Hope it goes well!
