I took it for a month, but had to stop the pill form. It cause a lot of gastric problems for me (stomach pains, explosive D, dizziness).

I think I'm going to be moved to the injections when I see the rheumy next week. I heard it's easier to deal with. However, I have a needle phobia. 0-0

We shall see!
Good luck with the apt joy, keep me updated! :)

Hi Snow,
They started me on the Methotrexate because i keep swinging into flares. IV been on plaquenil since I was diagnosed in the summer but the joint pain and organ involvement have been increasing so this is the next step I guess.

Why do you ask? Should I be concerned?
