Hi All! Just found this forum.
Diagnosed in Feb 2016 (after wondering for a year). On prednisone since then. Saw rheumy mid-May. Increased my Vit D (had already been low a while) and prescribed Metho 10mg 12 hrs apart (20 mg total) once a week. Also taking folic acid.
I've had naseua and sweats within about 6 hours. Goes off and on for following two days. On the 3rd day I feel woozy, nauseous (not as bad), and generally like flu. 4th and 5th day upper back pain, very little but some nausea.
Fist two rounds worked at home on Mondays. This week came in and wished I hadn't. I'm going to move doseage up a day and start Thursday so I can work at home Fridays, Mondays are too busy.
So my questions -
Do the Metho side effects lessen over time? I know there is 4-12 weeks to see results.
Should I got the full 12 weeks before looking to change?
Does the injections (instead of pill) help with other side effects beside naseau?
I see the rheumy next week, but wanted to get other's input.
