Just a little update. I picked up my first prescription of mtx yesterday from the pharmacy. It all felt very serious as she took me into a side room and warned me about how serious the drug is etc. Anyway I decided to take the bull by the horns and knocked back my first dose of 7.5mg with my evening meal. I decided not to read the leaflet because quite frankly I was starting to feel a bit morbid about the whole business and decided the best way forward would be to just go for it! The evening passed by fine followed by a comfortable night and today went well too. I don't know how long it takes for side effects to show but so far so good. I was aware my mouth tasted a bit dry and strange this morning but nothing worth worrying about. I know 7.5mg is only a low dose but still felt relieved not to wake up with an extra limb or anything. The follic acid is going to follow on Tuesdays. Anyway, keeping my fingers crossed and trying to keep positive. We've been out looking at wallpaper for the bedroom today. If I'm going to get more infections or need to take to my bed then at least I can lounge in style! Hope you are all keeping well and having a peaceful weekend.
