Hey I love cortisone, it damn well hurts at the time but within 48hrs I am moving well. I call it my go faster stuff. Sadly not allowed more than a couple of times a year for my RA.

I am only on methotrexate and anti inflammatory as recovering from lung op. I got a fungal infection which they thought was cancer but was due to immune suppression treatmen. I am not allowed back on immune suppression as could get it again and I lost part of my right lun. Methotrexate is not enough but U won't know anymore till go back to Hosp in June.

I have weekly methotrexate injections, Rituximab infusions every 9 months and for painkillers take tramadol, gabapentin, dihydrocodiene, amitriptyline and paracetamol. I don't like taking them particularly but I have to, to try and manage the pain.

i take methotrexate tablets once a week (8 in total) , i use tramadol regularly and indomethacin for inflammatory, i had a full wrist fusion a few years ago as my hand was buggered, im happy with what i take and never had a problem and have had ra since oct 2001, but one side effect i dont like and im sure its because of the medication is thinning hair, at the moment its at its worse, and its very demoralizing so i wear extentions, because i lose all self confidence! does anyone else suffer hair thinning or loss? and had any good storys of how to correct this?

Hair loss is unfortunately a side effect of the methotrexate. I have heard that taking zinc can help
