And if so what alternative treatment did you do if any!?
I was on it orally for about 5 months. He just took me off due to stomach upset. And I was in a flare with muscles..tendons..and joint pain...Possibly trying Imuran in October. Till then...double the pred....Still on plaquenil bid and cymbalta too.
I also had had two UTI while on methotrexate. One was a resistant organism. He found this odd as well as i have nor prior history of this.
I was injecting methotrexate as I couldn't take it orally and after about eight months got urine infection which wouldn't go and I ended up in hospital on an IV antibiotics as I developed pyelonephritis. I am now on lefludamide with no problems
Yes I am aware there are many treatments available... i am on several. I just was curious what others were on in place of their methotrexate.
There are many treatments available. Your doc should help you find what works for you. Good luck 🍀
