Rheumatrex

Rheumatrex

Has anyone taken rheumate with the methotrexate injections? I had been taking it with the oral dose and am not sure if the benefits are the same with the injectable.

Is Anyone Taking Rheumate? Has It Been Beneficial?

Is Anyone Taking Rheumate? Has It Been Beneficial?

I'm currently taking a small dosage of methotrexate (4 pills/week) and instead of increasing my dosage for slight joint discomfort, my Rheumy has prescribed Rheumate. It is described as a medical food that contains 1 mg of folate, B-12, and curcuminoid turmerine complex (turmeric). She advised that other patients have seen very good results from adding this supplement to their meds. It also is supposed to ease some of the side-effects of methotrexate. It also has… read more

What Would You Do??

What Would You Do??

What would you do? I can't get a call back from my rheumy. I've called twice since yesterday at 8:30am. My temp has gone as high as 100.3 since the weekend. My exhaustion is getting worse, even with me taking my Rheumate and my "flu like feeling" is getting worse. My back feels like I've been coughing and like I have bronchitis/pneumonia BUT I haven't been coughing.

Pain And Stiffness

Pain And Stiffness

I have recently had totally normal blood work done. It showed no active sign of a lupus flair. I've been off prednisone for about 2 months and just this week went from 8 methotrexate tablets to 6. They are trying to ween me off.

I'm… read more

Has Plaquenil Helped You?

Has Plaquenil Helped You?

From the beginning of treatment my rheumy put me on 400mg of Plaquenil daily. I take one pill in the morning and one at night. I struggled sticking to my meds and treatment plan for the first couple months or my diagnosis because I was in denial and didn't really believe it so I just recently started taking my medications again as prescribed (I was diagnosed October 2015).

The Plaquenil really upsets my stomach. I get acid reflux and it triggers my GERD and I wake up with a sore throat… read more
