Recently officially dx’ed with RA. Took my first dose of methotrexate on Saturday. Both my rheumatologist and pharmacist told me that the side effects hit the next day. They told me nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy. So far I had a bit of an unsettled tummy, not nauseous just blah. Two quick dizzy spells yesterday. Just seconds really.
I am taking folic acid. And my dosage of methotrexate is four pills totaling 10mg. Will this be my “normal” on this med or is it a cumulative effect. The longer you take it the more side effects?
I am ecstatic that I didn’t get hammered yesterday, but I don’t want to count on same reaction each time and get blindsided one day when out with the kids.
