Starting Methotrexate

Starting Methotrexate

I'm starting MTX tonight. I was wondering if anyone has any advice?
I have a prescription for zofran (anti-nausea), should I take some before I take my dose? Or load up with cannabis (legal in my state and I have a medical card).

I'm starting on 5mgs and tapering up to 15mgs. Not sure the first dose is going to be terrible, just nervous.

Throat problems?

Throat problems?

Anyone else have problems with their throats (swollen tonsils, irritation/soreness, bleeding, tonsil stones?)?

I have a lot of involvement in my mucosa. I get P all the way into the back of my throat. It flakes and sloughs and bleeds during a flare (like blood all over my tongue in the morning) and makes me feel like I have a terrible throat cold.

I was curious if anyone else has delt with this and if you have any advice?

The last time i gotten a tattoo was a couple months ago. This time it was pretty itchy. I assumed because its a bigger piece and is mostly color. But maybe it was also my psoriasis? Has anyone gotten a recent tattoo with having it? How bad has it affected you?
