3rd week without MTX
« on: April 26, 2012, 12:39:13 PM »
hello all.

My rhuemy said while i was on my antibiotic for UTI to not take my methotrexate. I have extended this vacation from MTX by myself. Today is my 3rd week without it. Not sure how long MTX stays in your system but i feel good.

I have no upcoming rheumy appt since I cancelled the one a week ago d/t my UTI. I am suppose to call back after UTI resolved and see him....I am not sure when I will be making that appt.....

This all may be folly on my part.......but it is an experiment of sorts.
(still taking my Plaquenil twice a day)

Could you keep us posted on this? MTX is one of my upcoming goals. Good luck and I hope you stay feeling well.

What good news!  I'm happy to hear when people are feeling good.  I haven't had a good day in weeks.   Btw, whenever I read the signature about your dog in your posts it always brings a smile to my face!
