I have been on methotrexate for over a year now. I started with the pill form and it made my stomach hurt pretty bad and moved on to the injection form. I will take it and about an hour later I start feeling a bit achy through out my body and the next day is a bed day. I stay put and just try to sleep as much off as possible. After that it really does get better! Just get through the first 24 hours and then it is downhill from there!!! I really hope this helps you as much as it has helped some of us. Good luck and keep us posted on how you are doing on the new meds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As I grow to understand life less and less,
I learn to love it more and more.
