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.
