Anyone have experience with metholtrexate? I'm supposed to start it today
I take it and for the beginning I was so sick a day or two after I started taking an anti nausea pill the day after and I was back to normal it seems to help a bit
I sorry u r taking it I have been for several years and it helps but read the side effects to see if it's for you good luck
I give myself an injection of 15mg every week. The following day or two, I am extremely fatigued. Most of the time, I don't even get out of bed. I have been on it for about a month and a half. I've heard for some people the side effects improve with time. My rheumatologist is going to see me in 2 months, and if the fatigue doesn't get better, he will be changing my medication (which is scary). MTX started helping my joint pain after about 3-4 weeks. The fatigue is unbearable and I'm Hoping it will improve. I also take 2mg folic acid every day to try to reduce side effects. I had a lot of stomach issues to start, but after switching to the injections from pills, they went away. Best of luck to you!
it seems to kick my but after I take it. My doctor has me taking folic acid 2 mg to offset this effect. The first time I took it after about a month it wasn't affecting me badly for 2 days and I was feeling better. then I had to have open heart surgery that Lupus probably caused and they had me stop it for 2 months. Now I am at ground zero again and it is kicking my but again. I try to take it when I have nothing to do for the nest day. sometimes I can't.
