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
