Methotrexate is very different from Lortab. Lortab is an opioid pain medication and is used as needed for pain.
Methotrexate is not taken as needed, it is usually taken once a week. It is a totally different type of medication. The following is from arthritis.org
Methotrexate is one of the mainstays of treatment for inflammatory forms of arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA) psoriatic arthritis and juvenile idiopathic arthritis, because it not only reduces pain and swelling, but it can actually slow joint damage and disease progression over time. That’s why methotrexate is known as a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD).
