I Was Taking 8 Tablets Of Methotraxate Doctor Recommends Injections Rasuvo Pen? Anybody Use Them Before? What About Side Effects?

I inject once a week, dr. prescribed the rasuvo pen Insurance wouldn't pay for it. From what I read/researched its just methotrexate in a easier to use pen. I tried taking methotrexate in pill form, but I had so much stomach cramping and nausea. Injections just work better for me. But its all the same medicine. Remember we all react differently to the same medications. So what others may experience does not mean you will. Good Luck

It will take a few weeks to get into your system before you see if they're going to benefit from them. Good luck.
