Otrexup has been wonderful!

    Otrexup is prefilled methotrexate. My insurance had to approve it first, they did and I love it. I can't feel it! Trying to get all the meds I could out of a vial drove me nuts. Then sometimes the syringes were duller than others... it was nuts. Otrexup has been great. I don't feel it at all. I highly recommend asking your doc for it if you take injectible methotrexate. It's just a big pen, you don't even see the needle if that makes you squeemish. If you have questions I'd be happy to answer questions about it.

    It is always nice to hear when a med has been successful. I hope it carries on working for you.

    Im on injection methotrexate. I will have to ask my doctor next time I see him.
    I hate needles and I can not give injections to myself. My hubby has to do it.
    Thank you for telling us about it.
    Take care,

    I hope you enjoy it. I love it. I've taken methotrexate injections for many years and wouldn't be without it. This pen is so much easier.
