Had my second rheumy appointment today and apparently I'm going on mtx injections from next week at an increased dose of 20mg. Am still on pred, should be tapering to 5mg but stuck on 7.5mg as am flaring a bit in elbows shoulders and knees. Anyway I have some stomach side effects but didn't consider them too bad so wondered why injections so soon. I'm happy enough to have them but wondered about others experience changing from tablets to injections. Does mtx work better in injection form? Do side effects decrease? Having cramps/nausea and a lot of acid reflux at the moment...not sure if it's all mtx related though. My rhuemy nurse was a different one today and felt a bit rushed. Had lots of questions which she answered but the injection thing caught me unaware so I asked nothing about it...just nodded my head like an obedient child!!
I have another appointment in six weeks and I'll be armed with another list of questions then I'm sure, but until then would be grateful for any info.
