Inj. MTX dosage
Yup, 0.8 injection = 20 mg oral. And I know, hard to stick with stuff you don't believe in, but don't stop any meds without a plan from your rheumy. When you go off a drug, you may never be able to do well on it again -- so the decision to stop should be part of a plan.
It's my understanding, that the same dose of injectable mtx is more effective than the same dose of oral mtx, pills, cuz you're bypassing the stomach. Hope you see better results w/injectable mtx. Take care.
I would encourage you to keep trying the meds you are currently on until you an your RD are sure they aren't working. I was on remicade for about 4 months before it started working. Then it worked great for about a year until my insurance changed and I couldn't take it for a few months. When I started again it didn't work at all!! So weird. And from what my RD told me I cant go back on it again. I am on Humira now-although with insurance had to stop that for about 6 weeks too. But thanks to help from some friends and other things I am on it again. Hope it keeps working.
Hang in there!!
