I was just wondering if any of you are also taking pain medication with the Methotrexate? I am on the once/a/week injections and the day after, I feel pretty blah. The Rheumy presribed Lortab 7.5/500 to take as needed but I have been on them for a few years now off and on and I don't feel like they are working as well as they once were.
For example. I got my shot in my arm last night before bed. I wasn't asleep 2 hours when I woke up chilling, my head was hurting, I was achy and I headed straight for the Lortab. I took 2 and went back to bed....within an hour, I was right back up, my whole body was aching and just plain jittery and creepy crawly so I took another one and an Ativan and slept for about 3 more hours and now I've been up since 5:00. This is NO good with a 22 month old who will be ready to go at about 8:30
. I need to try and convince them that I need something else to take. I would like to try one of the patches or something that I didn't have to take so often. I also have NO energy. Any suggestions there
Honestly, I am so sick and tired of feeling so bad and being so damn cranky and irritable. My husband makes me mad at the drop of a hat and so does everyone else. I've got to get a handle on this, it's ruining my life. Are any of you taking anti-depressants as well? It's the Holidays, my absolute favorite time of year and I can't be this way, I won't be this way, I need help guys. If so, I'd love to hear from all of you about your experiences, any advice would be so greatly appreciated, I'm soooo sad right now.
