New Treatment

New Treatment

Has anyone taken Azathioprine? What was your experience with benefit and side effects? My rheumy said it's a chemo type med similar to methotrexate. I can't take mtx due to RA involvement in lungs. I haven't started it yet as she said just 1/2 pill makes most people sick and I haven't had time for down time if it's necessary. Thanks in advance for your input. 😊

Do any of you have suggestions for controlling nausea/yucky feeling when taking methotrexate pills? It usually occurs after my last three of the day. I do take folic acid. Thanks.
