Hi, new to this. I was officially diagnosed with RA today and they doctor recommended these two for treatment (methotrexate and sulfasalazine). She suggested methotrexate as it seems to be the best. But I am terrified, and I mean TERRIFIED, of the side effects of both. I have a huge phobia of throwing up and would rather not take medication than taking it and getting sick. The doctor says the injections of methotrexate should help with the sickness but I read a lot of reviews on it and it seems people still get sick. Sulfasalazine seems to be the same but not as severe. The side effects of both just seem so awful. I have no idea what to do and am so scared. Any advice and shared experiences will be appreciated.
