Hi Melissa, Carol and Stacie.
Thank you so much ladies for your quick response. I have been on Methotrexate for almost 3 years now, so I guess I am better off being off of it. I know it can cause cancer years down the road so I am glad to be off of it. I am just scared at coming off of it so quickly, I know he tried taking me off of it before by cutting back and within a few weeks the pain was back full force and he told me to continue taking it. I am not a wimp when it comes to pain, I am just not looking forward to it returning full force again.
I think I will talk to my pharmacist today, I have to call in a prescription anyway and will see what he can tell me. He is really good for answering questions that I have.
THanks again ladies for the hugs and thoughts, I really really appreciate it.
Good luck on the 18th Melissa, I have had a breathing test done in the fall and never heard the results of it from my family doctor.
