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

  • It will get easier jen. I have used injections on mtx. I am taking tablets at the moment. xxx

  • 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

  • My query too. Mine even says I should take it the same day, but in am when im due to inject at night. Strange one.

  • Really pleased that all is well after your first dose of methotrexate, and thank you for letting us know how you are. Take care, June xx

  • Good luck ... As said, always nerve racking to do the new med. Hope it works great for you. x
