I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis 6 weeks. My dr put me on the following meds:
:Methotrexate 2.5 mg 6tablets 1 time a week
Folic Acid 1 mg once a day,
Hydroxychloroquine 200mg 2 times a day
Duloxetqine DR 30mg 2 times a day
My pain is so much better, but I am feeling my body is so toxic. I feel so tired from so many meds, brain fog, nauseated, shaking in hands, blurred vision, headaches. My dr said I will be on these meds for life. I am not willing to accept this. I have no quality of life.
Does anyone feel poisoned? I am sensitive to meds, a 200 mg Motrin put me to sleep for 8 hours.
I am making an appointment for a second opinion. Are there any recommended literature that I could read? Thanks!
