My rheumatologist is a bit of a flake and can't keep track of my medications. She called me last night to tell me that my blood work is showing my liver is starting to be affected, so she wants me to reduce my MTX to "9". She then hung up the phone. I'm taking MTX by injection, so I can't reduce it to "9". I called her office back but it's closed until Jan 5 and doesn't accept messages. Do I ask my GP to prescribe me 2 weeks worth of MTX at a lower injection volume (currently it's 25 mg or the equivalent of 10 pills)? Or do I go back to pills for 2 weeks? I see my rheumy next on Jan 9.
