Your not alone, I am in my 5th week of mtx, but I was given the oral med..and I thought that I wud ask my rheumy if the shots wud be better, but reading your post hon, I see you are feeling just like I do.
Here is what someone told me to do, and it has sorta worked, not great but I dont feel as bad as I did
She told me to eat pasta or rice, the day of the shot/oral, and try to drink twice as much water that day than I normally drink.
My doc has me on 5 mg of folic acid, and only once a week as well..2 days after the oral dose
What strength are you on of folic acid? Plus..I was told it was to help my body absorb nutrients, that it had nothing to do with helping with nausea. I have to say taht last week when I took the folic acid...I had a very queasy stomache till saturday (I take the FA on Wednesdays)
So, try the pasta or rice the day of your shot, and drink drink drink...see if that helps. I figured by the 4th or 5th week we wouldnt be feeling this ill
Let me know hon, and good luck
