MTX

MTX

How is everyone doing with Methotrexate? Taking that along with hydroxychloroquine. MTX bothers my stomach and makes me dizzy sometimes. Hope is start to see some benefit from it.

Thanks for sharing how you are doing on MTX. I have been wondering what it is like. Someone shared that the IV MTX is better as it doesn't cause the stomach/diarrhea issues.

Rheumatologist wanted to start MTX but I already have IBS, depression and don't need any help adding to those! And I have sero negative RA, DX'ed 1 year ago. So I am going the route of alternative medicine for a while to see if I can treat it that way instead of with heavy duty drugs. Sero negative is a less aggressive form of RA.

Take 2 in the morning, then 2 at supper. This week wasn’t as bad. The darn fatigue is wearing me down. Am just so tired all day, little to no ambition. This is hard coming from someone who was always on the go.

I took the two combos 20+ years ago, do you take at night ? That may help with dizziness.

I have had horrible dizziness spells and I didn't even think to connect the two. I'm taking the same thing.
