HI All. As some of you will know I've been having some trouble with taking MTX lately re nausea etc. You may also recall that my GPs seem opposed to the idea of my taking it by injection - not sure why but they just are - they seem not to have heard of this option and certainly have no other patients who take it this way I was told.
My GP did suggest that I ask the rheumy about splitting the dose when I see him next week. He said he hadn't heard of this being done before but was unclear about why it shouldn't be done since it works cumulatively and is in our systems all the time - so why do we have to take the whole dose on one day he wondered?
So before I ask my rheumy a week today - and being honest I really don't fancy having to keep thinking about MTX over the week as the nausea also gets worse when I've taken my daily dose of Hydroxy - I thought I'd ask here if anyone knows why we take MTX once a week always unlike other meds such as Sulpha or Hydroxy?
