Hi All. I've been very lucky to date not to experience any nausea after taking MTX but since rising last week to 17.5 I'm finding this no longer to be the case. I feel horribly sick tonight same as after last week's dose. I'm hoping it wears off as my body acclimatises to the new dosage (I had 7 tablets for 2 weeks a while back and had no nausea so it's weird that it's hitting me now?). I also noticed that the waves of depression returned on Thursday and Friday last week so I'm hoping that was a one off.
The bright pink weird bite-like spots I've been getting on my face and neck after MTX haven't materialised for about 3 weeks which is great but this nausea is horrible. Any suggestions what I can take for it? I'm already taking 5 folic acid tablets a week and take MTX same time every Tuesday evening with food - and I drink lots of water afterwards. Should I start taking the Omaprezole again I wonder even though I think it might block me up? Last week the nausea and foul taste lasted for a few days so I'm hoping it won't be that long this time - I feel as if I'm car sick?
I can't tolerate mtx at 17.5 either. I get sick and my hair starts to fall out. Also get ulcers in unmentionable places! Rheumy nurse suggested I take folic acid every day apart from mtx day as apparently you can't overdose on it. Sorry can't be more help xx
I’m on the Metojet injections at 25mg and really feel like giving up the nausea is almost unberarable for 2 days afterwards. Told to take folic acid 5mg daily to help but just can’t stomach daily tablets. taking 10 tablets, MTX 25mg was difficult I find the injections are not much better. The nausea is still there as is the anticipation of having to take them. Now I’m being treated for sarcoidosis. Does this mean I won’t get or even realise if I have RA?
