Folic Acid - Methotrexate

Folic Acid - Methotrexate

I seem to have difficulty tolerating Folic Acid which was prescribed to help with the side effects of my injectable methotrexate. It seems that after I take it, my digestion is terrible.

Olumiant

Olumiant

My doctor is going to put me Olumiant. I was on Actemra but I had two needles that wouldn’t plung so I said I am not going to take it again. Does anyone take this? I have been on so many different ones that I am about to say I am done with this. I just want one that works longer than a year. I am so tired of giving myself injections and I am so tired of hurting.
