Phone consultation today with specialist nurse - NRAS
I’m glad things are moving for you now, I can understand your happiness and apprehension, that’s similar to how I felt. Very best wishes to you. 🙂
That's great news. I too can understand your mixed feelings as I was the same. Hope all will be ok for you, and that you will soon be feeling better xx
I felt nervous too because I had a bad reaction to sulfazalazine in June. started methotrexate last Friday , so far I’ve been fine . Hopefully they will kick in soon for you and you’ll be feeling a lot better .
Hello, I’ve just picked up my prescription of mtx today and think l will take the first 15mg dose on Sunday evening so rather apprehensive too. Fingers crossed for both of us- all good wishes x
Good luck to you maisie, hope you get on OK with it x
I hope everything works out OK jojo. Good luck. 🤞 x
All the best I was fine just remember sometimes it take few weeks to get in your system so hold on there were all different but I was fine on it 2 years later still on it life is good for me 🤞x
That's good news. I hope you do as well on it as I have. I have taken mxt for 19 years without any problems and it has changed my life. It won't work overnight though. It does take a few weeks to kick in. Good luck.
I am very happy for you and hope that MTX will give you relieve from the RA symptoms. MTX was my first drug, apart from steroids and I never had any serious side effects. Fingers crossed for you.
I had the same feelings of happiness and apprehension. I’m fairly new on MTX but have started to see some changes in how I feel. I still get very tired the day after the medication though. So don’t be alarmed. And please take care of yourself xxx
Well hey there jojo really hope that it works for you take care x
Hi, how you getting on?? Hope your not feeling to bad x
Well jojo ty for asking have a lot of fatigue at the moment and I don't know whether this is due to the Mtx or the arthritis am really having trouble sleeping take care x
Thinking of you and hope that all goes well for you with the MTX. It can take a while to become fully effective but know many people who MTX works really for them and hope this is how it is for you too. x
