Just a quick one.
As some of you are aware, I have gastroparesis at the moment and have eaten next to nothing for the past 6 days. There is movement according to my GP but it's just so slow and bowel sounds are present but really hard to find. My question is, should I continue to take all my sjogrens meds? I am still taking omeprazole in the hope it helps keep any excess acid from sitting in my throat and a 5mg tablet of prednisolone as I didn't want to just stop it, but I'm not sure about methatrexate. I have visions of all these meds just sitting floating in my stomach and making things worse as they are not going anywhere are they? I have stopped all the vitamin type things and any "as needed" medications but what about the mtx? Do I really need my immune system suppressed at the moment? Will it hurt to just stop it till I'm better or does it really have to be weaned off?
