I've pushed through my side effects this week. I still have things that have to be done and time waits for no one. I just pace myself and try not to over do!
My hair is still thinning and I talk to my doc next week about increasing my folic acid.
My biggest fear right now is when I get to my appointment and after. What if my labs are all out of wack and I still have three (as of that appointment) to increase to the dose they want me at. I know I'll probably be anemic due to regular ladies things. Not just from the meds. Sorry guys if that's too much info. And I run borderline low on alot of my labs anyway.
However here are two questions I have for you all.
1) what changes did your doctor make when your labs were off from taking mtx?
2) Have any of you tried or taken a cold medicine like Mucinex DM for your side effects? And if so how did it work for you?
Oh and my tongue cleared up!!
I'm just over half way of my first ten weeks on mtx and you guys have made it easier by being positive and encouraging! A huge shout out to you!!! 😊
