I am on Methotrexate and am finding relief in two days. Is this right?
I've been taking methotrexate for about two weeks well every Tuesday 6 pills .. how long before I feel the effects of it working. Is there side effects so far just nausea at times
I was on this medication, but is was making me nauseous for a few days after taking it, so was it good to stop taking, I've made a follow up with rheumy & Primary doc, but takes so long to get an appointment.? Please let me know what your feeling is about this. Thank you
I needed something to help with swelling and pain.
Went to the rheumatologist today and he is taking me off methotrexate. The side effects are just too much for me even though they kind of make you feel like there's something wrong with you. He said "Most people have few, if any, side effects but I guess you are in that minority". Grrrrrr....that just kind of gets on my nerves for some reason. I apparently have a choice between Enbrel or Arava. Thoughts? Experiences? Recommendations? Thanks!
One of my colleagues at work has fibromyalgia and suggested to me today that I try tumeric capsules to help with pain and immflamation as she said it works a treat for her. I’m just wondering has anyone tried this for RA and if so did it help?
I was just reading an article on http://www.rheumatoidarthritis.net about how people with RA will say "I have to take my 'chemo' today" rather than calling it 'methotrexate'. I have no problem with anyone calling MTX Chemo because it is infact a Chemo drug. When I was on MTX for Wegner's Granulomatosis years ago I called it chemo because the pills made me vomit and lose my hair but I only said it to my family and a close friend. I don't think that I would feel comfortable using it regularly… read more
I am starting methotrexate tonight. I would love to hear your experiences with it. Thanks.
