Thank you psalm 18:30. Your response gave me the courage to take the first mtx dose this morning. I'm very bad with medications and following thru with taking them. I worry about
the side effects but I'm in a lot of pain and exhausted and this time, that outweighs my worry. And then knowing someone else has already walked this path, helps immensely!!
The doctor broke up the MTX dose into taking 1/2 in the morning and 1/2 in the evening , I think because I was so worried about
side effects. This helps to lessen them. I noticed he only prescribed 8 pills so he may be considering moving this to one dose once I feel comfortable. Plus I'm on a low dose 5mg total, once a week.
One of my concerns is that I started the MTX, Prednisone 30mg and hormones Prem/Pro all at once and if I do have any side effects, it might be difficult figuring out which med caused it. But, I'm going to remain positive and can deal with that if it happens.
Again, thank you for your response. This is a bit overwhelming. Lots of info on the web to sift thru and it's very easy to get lost in everything. I asked my doctor what are my next steps and he said "Whatever it takes to make you feel better"
