Methotrexate has helped my RA but i have a lot of the side effects: nausea vomitting usually for two days after my inj also hair loss, fatigue, and malaise. But after three consecutive blood tests showing elevated liver enzymes my dr wont let me continue. I seem to have trouble with all meds and am AGAIN untreated besides pain meds which are near impossible to get not sure what to try next!

Comment:
I had been taking the pills for almost 2 1/2 years. With very little results the pain was just a constint thing. Most days I just wanted to stay in bed I hurt so much. I talked to my Dr about changing to injectable and she thought it would be a good idea. I have only been taking it for about a month now and am so happy with the results. I am stiff in the morning but after a shower I feel grea ... Show Full Comment
