Are there more risks or benefits with use of weekly methotrexate as injection vs oral for arthritis or ctds. Why is oral usually prescribed?
Is it better to be on 25mg methotrexate injections (53pounds) or lower dose of methotrexate along with a biological in treating juvenile arthritis?

The major risk is infection with other possible side effects being reduced blood counts, liver inflammation, neurologic disorders and a possible increased risk of lymphoma. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Temporary: Arthritis causes inflammation in the affected joint. Steroids will decrease the inflammation within the joint and improve pain. Once the steroids wear off, the symptoms will reoccur. For knee arthritis, a better long-term non-operative option would be visco supplementation. Injections are given as a series, which may take from 1-5 weeks to complete.
