How Hard Is It Giving Yourself Methotrexate Shots? Anyone Gave A Bad Reaction?

How Hard Is It Giving Yourself Methotrexate Shots? Anyone Gave A Bad Reaction?

I took the oral twice and had severe stomach problems. Doctor says with the shot I won't have these problems, so I'm hoping she's right. I'm taking the folic acid also, as well as Hydroxychloroquin and Meloxicam. Anyone else have luck with these drugs?

I also do the metho shots. Using a diabetic needle works well.

Methotrexate Or Sulfasalazine...is Anyone On Either Of These Or Have You Tried Them? I’m Nervous After Reading All The Side Effects.

Methotrexate Or Sulfasalazine...is Anyone On Either Of These Or Have You Tried Them? I’m Nervous After Reading All The Side Effects.

I was on Hydroxychloroquine, but it interfered with medication that is controlling my epilepsy so I had to stop taking it. In the meantime my RA has progressed and the docs say I need to get back on RA meds. They said either Sulfasalazine 500mg or Methotrexate 2.5 mg. I noticed the long list of side effects on both medications which is not very comforting. Also. Saw that both may cause seizures. I don’t need anymore help in that area. I don’t know what to do. I’ve been trying to stay positive… read more

Does Methotrexate Wear Off In Between Doses?

Does Methotrexate Wear Off In Between Doses?

Hi everyone,
I take methotrexate (orally) on Friday nights. From Saturday to Wednesday, the pain is a lot less. I can also go down to 15mg of prednisone. By Wednesday night, I can already feel a difference and I need to go back up to 20mg of prednisone on Thursday morning or else I wouldn’t be able to put any weight on my foot. Is it possible that the methotrexate is wearing off?
Thank you!!

A myRAteam Member said:

I have the same experience. The methotrexate wears off 2 days early. The pain and stiffness get much worse.

How Many People Are Still Taking Methotrexate?

How Many People Are Still Taking Methotrexate?

My Family Doctor was discussing all of the Medications I am taking.
He said some of his RA patients stopped taking Methotrexate when they added a Biologic Medication.
Awhile ago I added Xeljanz to my Methotrexate.

So basically I am asking those who started taking Methotrexate and then later added a Biologic or Xeljanz, are you still taking Methotrexate?

Methotrexate

I’m going to start taking methotrexate this week but was wondering about drinking I like to have a glass or two of wine a evening with dinner. What’s everyone experience on drinking, really worried about the side affects of these tablets, any help much appreciated.

A myRAteam Member said:

Yes. I’m not a usual drinker by nature. But a small glass of white wine, and I mean like three to four sips, is all I’ll have on a special occasion. I am aware even then that perhaps I shouldn’t. But… read more
