Otrexup Auto Injector

Otrexup Auto Injector

What have your experiences with the otrexup injections been like? I have a prescription for a 20mg otrexup injector (methotrate) and am pretty scared to start taking it. Does anyone have any wisdom or tips to get me started on my much needed medication?

Orencia didn’t work for me. It made my fatigue worse and I actually stayed in bed more after starting it. I was out on Rinvoq after and it’s been a miracle drug for me . Helps so

I Will Be Starting On Methotrexate Tablets Tomorrow. Are They As Bad As I Have Heard? I Am A Little Nervous.

I was on Otrexup for five weeks but my insurance company says that I have to try the alternatives (tablets or vials) before they will approve the Otrexup. I was diagnosed on May 12, so I am fairly new to the process. I have heard that the tablets are hard on the stomach and the rest of the body

Rasuvo/ Otrexup Auto Inject

Rasuvo/ Otrexup Auto Inject

I was taking methotrexate pills for 2 months which made me sick for days at a time. Dr. switched me to Rasuvo. BCBSOK denied it without trying an injectable first. The thought of injecting myself with a needle causes me anxiety. I picked it up, got it home and could not do it. As of today I've gone 2.5 weeks without it, and the pain is ridiculous. Anybody else had this issue with BCBS and were you ever able to get it approved, and how?

Got BCBS to cover the Otrexup injectable. Very easy and virtually painless to use. It's been working great until a flare up started yesterday. Not sure what triggered it, but today is hell.

Pain Meds

Pain Meds

I'm new here and will work on my intro and such as I have time. Do any of you take hydrocodone for pain? I see my rheumatologist again tomorrow and I'm sure he'll begin me on some type of injections since my current meds aren't keeping me from flare ups. I've been on these for over 2 yrs now.

Yes I take hydrocodone when the pain is really bad. Sometimes I take a half of a pill and it is just enough to take the edge off. The past few days have been pretty bad as far as joint pain and… read more

Enbrel

Enbrel

I’ve been prescribed enbrel. I would like to hear everyone’s experiences with taking it. So far, I’ve only taken mtx and folic acid

Hi Anthony, I’m taking both. Mtx alone left me with a lot of pain & stiffness. Adding enbrel is really helping
