I too am on metho by injection for the past year. Occasionally I do feel nauseous the day after my injection, thus my rheumy prescribed compazine or generic as;prochlorperazine 10mg. for the GI issues. It works. It slows things down and I may feel sleepy. But the G.I. issues disappear.View Thread
HAS ANY ONE EXPERIENCED A GREAT AMOUNT OF WEIGHT GAIN WITH RA AND TAKING METHOTREXATE?
I HAVE TYPE 1 DIABETES AND HEART DISEASE, AND I AM GOING TO TELL YOU IT IS NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE TO TELL WHAT IS GOING OUT OF WHACK AND WHAT TO ADDRESS. IF IT IS AN EMERGENCY OR SOMETHING I CAN HANDLE ON MY OWN.
I AM RETAINING LOTS OF WATER AND LOOK 5 MONTHS PREGNANT. I WENT FROM A SIZE 8 TO A 14 IN 6 MONTHS AFTER I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH RA.
I AM NOW SEEING MY CARDIOLOGIST, BECAUSE MY ENDO AND RHEUMY DID NOTHING WHEN I KEPT ASKING THEM WHY I WAS GAINING SO MUCH WEIGHT. HE PUT ME ON LASIX AND WE SEE IN A WEEK WHAT THE RESULTS ARE. THEN MORE TESTING. COULD RA HAVE AFFECTED MY HEART SO EARLY IN THE DIAGNOSIS? CAN THE METHO. CAUSE SUCH WEIGHT GAIN OR WATER WEIGHT GAIN?
