    Hi Ashley,
    I have had 7 treatments so far and in the beginning,i was ready to stop because I would literally get sicker within 24hrs of the Benlysta, lots of pain . my rheumy noticed others on the same treatment at the office were also getting sick, he gives me a cocktail of one tylenol 500mg, one benadryl and 125mg of iv solu-medrol, then i recieve the Benlysta iv. i hope this help. here is a list of meds im on n u can compare with yours . Methotrexate 25mg injection once a week, mycophenalate 500mg tablets(2tablets twice a day), paquenil 200mg (2 tablets a day), prednisone 10- 15mg a day, bactrim, vitamin d, fish oil, hydrcholorothiazide 25mg once a day. have a pain free day slim

    i noticed your thread about methotrexate tablets.
    i presume you are taking 8 tablets.
    cannot you get a stronger tablet.
    in australia, we have 2mg and 10 mg tablets.
    the stronger ones go by the brand name methoblastin, instead of methotrexate.
    i have cut down to 1 x 10mg tablet at the moment.
    i was up to 20mg.
    i could not imagine having to swallow 10 tablets, plus my other meds.
    check if a stronger dose is available.

    thank you for checking on me.
    i had my foot inspection today.
    all is good......
    i have left an update on my origonal post.

    i see your having a few dramas also.....
    i read your post.
    being 50, and retired, i am not able to offer advice.

    again thank you for asking about me.
  9. Long time no talk indeed! I'm doing OK. I have my good days and my bad days, but I'm managing pretty well.

    There is, unfortunately, some bad news. My Dad was diagnosed with Stage 3 lung cancer about two months ago. He's responded well to the chemo and radiation so far, and they are going to do surgery to remove the tumor(s) sometime next week. It's been a real emotional rollercoaster, and most of my energy as of late has been spent on helping Mom and Dad with whatever they need.

    How are you doing? Did you have a good Christmas?

    Rob
