I will do guys thanks all for ur support means a lot knowing there's others who no what I'm on about xxxx

I'm on injections - they work much better for my RA and I have no issues with injecting at all. Unfortunately, during a month off my RA drugs an old tummy problem resurfaced and now having to move down a dose to see if I feel better while my tummy problems are investigated. I would be really interested to know more about yours if possible? The injectable MTX is not responsible for them but I found the Omaprazole I was taking interacted badly with the MTX - now taking Ranatidine (Zantac) instead so hoping with the lower dose MTX and the new stomach protector I will be better as 17.5 mg of injectable MTX has been brilliant for my RA at least. Let us know how you get on. Tilda x

hi Tilda just read this older site and wondering what was your outcome? I have been on methotrexate for 7 years, 61/2 tablets then injections due to HUGE stomach issues, my stomach has destended to look 9 months pregnant , I have difficulty eating certain foods, cant seem to digest them.

I have test after test and no one seems to come up with an answer. Look forward to hearing from you. cheers Trish
