I know what you mean, about feeling toxic. At one point I was on MTX, Mobic, Flexeril, Plaquenil, Medrol and Tramadol and just reading the side effects and possible long term effects, made me sick to my stomach.
Well the Plaquenil was stopped, because it didn't do anything for me. The MTX was stopped again, two weeks ago, because of liver problems. The Tramadol give me the itchy willies, can't take that. For a while I was trying Celebrex, got rapid heartbeat from it and dizzyness, had to stop IT.
Now I am only taking Mobic, Flexeril and a low dose of Medrol. But now I am in pain again. What a mess.
I hope evrything is working in your favor.
I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
