Methotrexate

Methotrexate

I’m not sure what to title this. :)
I am on my fourth weekly treatment of Methotrexate (6 pills 2.5 mg all at once on Wednesday).
I feel really tired about 24 hours after my dosage and it lasts about 48 hours. I stlll take the Zanaflex and Voltaren also... does anyone notice swelling And horrible soreness after Methotrexate???

I take Methotrexate 8 once a week. I feel tired a lot at the beginning but you will start feeling better soon. Your side effects will go away . Get your rest. Stop before you get tired.

Just starting methotrexate. haven't taking it yet and was giving to me 2 weeks ago. with all the holidays coming up and all the side effects I read about I am scared to death to start it. Is it better to take in morning or at night so maybe you sleep though the sleep effects maybe

Chefsdc, we are at the same timeframe. I am still feeling like my swelling is horrible the day of and a couple days after my mthrrx dosage. They now prescribed Zofran and it helps a lot with nausea!! I am thinking of you!

Yes! It seems to knock me down for about 48hrs. I start feeling better for the next 48hrs, but by then it's time to take another injection! On top of it my pain is not getting better ☹️ I am so tired of this. I have folic acid and I take it every day. I have only been on mthx about 5 weeks now. I totally understand what you are saying!
