Rheumatologist wants to put me on methotrexate becuase I'm struggling to taper - currently on 17mg. I'm reluctant, it's another nasty in my view and the increased monitoring is an additional stress. But getting the pred down is important too especially as I'm developing the chubby cheeks.
I've been very low carb for just over a week now and feel pretty good. Hoping this will make the difference and I would really like to give it another 4 weeks and attempt a drop to 16mg before considering Methotrexate....daft idea or not?
Grateful for any thoughts you have. Thanks all.
