Unfortunately, there is no cure for RA. MTX helps relieve many of the symptoms of RA, but it won’t cure the disease.

Is Rasuvo® (methotrexate) injection a cure?
How long will I take Rasuvo?
You can take Rasuvo as long as it’s effective and helps improve your symptoms. Your doctor may prescribe other medications along with Rasuvo as your disease progresses.
Is Rasuvo the medicine I see in TV commercials?
Probably not. Chances are the medications you have seen advertised on TV are called biologic therapies, which are commonly prescribed by rheumatologists and are often used concurrently with Rasuvo.

Everyone is different. However, most patients using Rasuvo see symptom relief in about 3 to 6 weeks, although it can take up to 12 weeks for Rasuvo to reach its full effect.

Will taking Rasuvo make me sick?
It’s true that some patients experience nausea and vomiting while taking Rasuvo. Other common side effects for Rasuvo include stomach pain, indigestion (dyspepsia), mouth sores, and rash. Although these are the most common side effects of Rasuvo, other side effects have been reported. Studies have also shown that subcutaneous MTX (an injection under the skin) decreases gastrointestinal side effects compared with oral MTX. See the Rasuvo Patient Information for a complete list of side effects. Review the Full Prescribing Information and consult with your healthcare professional.
Do I have to take Rasuvo on the same day every week?
Yes, you should take Rasuvo on the same day each week.
Does Rasuvo therapy require any lab tests?
Some RA drugs, including Rasuvo, can cause organ damage. That’s why you’ll have to undergo routine lab tests so your doctor can monitor your liver and kidney functions. These tests are performed as often as your doctor thinks best, usually every several weeks.
