Just been diagnosed with RA , also OA. Only my hands are affected but still affect my daily life. Anyhow, it's good to know there is a thoughtful, smart RA community out there that take charge of their condition.
Just took my first MTX dose - going to take 5 mg every 8 hours, total 15mg/24 hours (pharmacist tells me this helps to reduce risk of side effects). Also plus acid 1 mg daily and plaquenilm 200g daily. I am in the US and it seems standard to use this regimen.
Any others splitting the dose of MTX this way?
Good to be here.
