i have been on MTX for about 18 months taking two 10mg tablets a week. After some time I started developing liver problems and the dose was reduced to one 10mg tablet per week. In December my liver blood results had improved and because I was in pain it was decided to reinstate the higher dose but with more folate. I also have Cimzia injections each fortnight.
all this time I have never had any side effects from MTX but for the past two weeks I have been getting very nauseous, usually starts just after I take them and it's lasting a few days. I've also noticed a lot of hair falling out too.
Has anyone else been able to tolerate it for a while before it causes side effects?
