Hi there ...

Thank you for your question ...

Well Methotrexates is DMARD ( Disease modifying anti Rheumatoid drug ) which prevent pain in long term , while Feldeine controls pain acutely .

So it would be ideal for you to take Feldene along with Methotrexate to prevent pain / inflammation as Methotrexate will not control acute pain .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks .

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
