Thank you so much for your responses.
I cant do the injections as our insurance will cover only the pills, and the injectable mtx is very very expensive.
One week...about 2 months ago..I was having tummy troubles, and decided to not take my mtx for that week, and by the end of the second week I had the extreme pain happen to me as well momto3. I figured it was payback for skipping a dose
Sue, I take alot of gravol (dramamine) now, the first couple of days of mtx...but maybe I need something like the pepcid instead. I find that tuesday and wednesdays my stomache is constantly rolling, and it sounds like there is a thunderstorm going on in there Very noisy let me tell ya...so I know I am not imagining how bad I feel.
I will try it. Gravol is an anti nauseant..whereas pepcid is good for relieving gassy stomache and indigestion? ..hmmm..it will be worth a try!! I thought that Folic Acid was supposed to help with mtx side effects...my doc rx 5 mg 2 days after the dose...but I took 5 the day of the dose..and the following day...but I am not sure it helped at all.
