I made it through the night !

I am pleased to say that after taking my first dose of MXT I made it through the night and woke up this morning without any feelings of sickness. I know it's early days but so far so good. I feel so much better for having got that first dose over with. I must say a very big thank you to all those people on this site who have supported and encouraged me over the last 24 hours. I am so glad I joined. Jean x

great news, I was getting a lot of side affects with the MTX, but they have now upped my Folic acid to every day and things are a lot better, Take Care shirley xx

I have never had any sickness with MTX and from the start I was prescribed 5mg Folic Acid every day except the day I take the MTX. I wonder why different rheumatologists prescribe FA differently when it seems every one who takes it 6 times a week does better than on a lesser dose? Kathy
