I’d like to know how you cope with your side effects from Mtx? When do you call your Rhumy?
Hi I went on methotrexate for 3 months was great for pain but I had side affects my hair was dropping so had to come off it straight away had some nausea and took folic acid which helped give it time everyone is different and any concerns or problems talk to ur doctor don’t suffer it’s all trial and error with these meds
I have been taking methotrexate for more than ten years. The only side effects I have is heart burn. My doc has prescribed stomach protectors for this.
Feeling exhausted is normal for people with RA, even if I stopped taking methotrexate I think I would still be tired all the time, but I would also be in more pain.
What ever we do, there will always be a trade off. We all hate taking the drugs but we simply can’t live a decent life without them.
Good luck, hope it works for you
I call in to get shots. I deal with my hot spots with cortisone shots. I have my feet injected, to maximum amounts, so I don't get any more neuromas in my feet.
Having sore throat all of a sudden is a very seriuos side effect and you should seek medical advice immediately. Honestly dont delay or even go to a&e!
