| | started MTX
I had my 1st MTX injection (dosage 15) today & began taking Folic Acid 5mg. daily. They also prescribed me low dose prednisone full dose-2wks./half dose-2wks./then every other day until I run out & by that time the MTX is supposed to be working.
They told me to watch for mouth sores & coughs. Can you believe that it's only been 1/2 a day since I got my injection & I already have 2 mouth sores?! One on the inside of my cheek & one on the side of my tongue. What is up with getting them so fast? I guess I need to call & report this?
How do you handle getting colds-flu's etc having RA & taking MTX? I feel sure my twin babies will have them going round our household for many yrs. to come.
