I’m really sorry to hear that you’re having such a hard time. Unfortunately, it’s not a good idea to stop methotrexate "cold turkey." Some people experience no side effects to suddenly stopping taking this medication, but it does have the potential for creating an intense RA flare. The goal of medication is to protect your joints and other systems in the body (internal organs, such as the heart, the vascular system, etc.) against damage that can be created by active RA inflammation. It’s therefore important to take your medication. However, it’s also important to eat right, because that helps the rest of your body gets stronger.
