I was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I was first prescribed sulfasalazine but didn't improve on it after 7 weeks. My doc recently switched me to methotrexate and folic acid. She also gave me meloxicam and predisone to take as needed. I have not taken these last two. I've literally been on the methotrexate (4 pills taken one day a week) for 2 weeks. I'm not sure when tot expect it to start showing signs of working. Also, my face started breaking out in the next couple of days after taking the 2nd dose of methotrexate. I am feeling frustrated, and don't want to stop but also don't want to deal with the breakouts. Does anyone have any similar reactions to the medication? Thanks you very much.

I am 82 years old and have been in good health. I recently have become dizzy. I have gone to a cardiologist, neurologist, internist, eye ear nose and throat specialist and no one can find any reason for the dizziness. I have been taking folic acid for the last 20 years could this be the culprit?
