I guess most people wouldn’t choose to start a drug like Methotrexate on their birthday, but it seemed the best option in light of the others. When I took Mtx as a teenager, I split the dose over two days – Friday and Saturday – which meant that I would get the nausea etc on the following days and not during the week, when I needed to get through college. I figured that this time it might be nice to have my weekends to do nice things when I’m well, plus I may eventually work Mon-Wed at some point, so Thursday was chosen as the ‘least important’ day of the week.
I’m not really looking forward to taking it again as it did make me quite sick and never really seemed to help, but at least this time it’s only a small dose of 7.5mg to help boost the mechanism of the Abatacept.
I’ve saved taking it until evening, so here we go…
