I am going to do 1st MTX injection on Friday and hoping that may be enough to turn things round. ( same dose 20mg )
My question is has anyone experienced real improvement just from the switch from oral to injectable MTX ?
After many months of nothing happening I had a video conference with my rheumatologist today and he is suggesting throwing in sulphasalazine as well
" sooner rather than later ".
He says it's up to me when I want to begin this and my feeling is to wait a couple of months and see whether the injections are going to turn things round on their own before embarking on something else but that's based on the idea that the less drugs the better ... maybe this idea has to go out the window with RA although I am very attached to it.
It also seems that the more different things you are taking the more impossible it becomes to know where any effects , good or bad , are coming from...
My GP says I am overthinking things.
But anyway it would be great to hear anything on this.
