Hi and thanks again. She did mention something about folic acid, but didn't say to take any...wish I had paid attention a little better on that one. What is the reason for the folic acid? She did ask me if I ate lots of leafy greens, which I do.
Took the first dose of meth. last night about 1 hour before bed; felt whoosie for a while before falling asleep, I guess that is normal?
Oh, and I can't beleive I forgot this in my last post: pharmacy would not fill the naproxyn script they said it interacts with the methotrexate. And in the patient information sheet that you get with your script, sure enough it talked about that....
Why would she give me that then? She did say something about since we don't need to be concerned about stomach ulers in me that it would be OK. At least I think that's what she said. Anyway, pharmacy was waiting for a call back from doc before filling it. Since she had said to wait a few days after the methotrexate to start that, I didn't make a big deal out of it.
OH---I remember now. She said something about getting sores in my mouth, and if that happened then we would do folic acid!!! So, should I just take some anyway? I really would rather not wait to see if I get SORES in my mouth....
How do I tell if the amount of folic acid isn't enough? The mouth sores?
When you say "drink more water than you normally would"--OK, I normally drink nearly a gallon of water a day! Should I drink more than *I* normally would, or more than most people probably would?
I don't feel overly tired today; no headache either. These are what I see can most commonly happen; so other than feeling a bit queezy last night, so far, so good.
Thanks so much for your help! I think I might just take some folic acid anyway...
I would rather NOT wait till sores show up, as I don't need something else to deal with!
Again, thanks for the help on this thread.
