Most people start out on the tablets, if they get too much nausea after a couple of months then they can be switched to the injections. Lots of people have no trouble on the tablets though Good luck, I hope it helps you a great deal.
Hi! I've been taking metho (in pill form) since last Sept. I had a little nausea at first, but no problems now. Seems to be helping. Rheumy started me on a low dose (2.5 mg) and has increased it twice. Hope it helps you! Cathy
I started on methotrexate Jan.09.
No side effects for me. Not even nausea.
Methotrexate hasn't helped me though. Not enough to write home about. I am up to 20mg (pill) and that is the highest my rhumey will go. I don't know if he will suggest the injections. Will find out end of July.
Hope it works for you.
