I found it difficult to stomach methotrexate in tablet form they upset my stomach & no sooner had l taken them they came back up. With the injection pen l receive the whole dosage and so far have had no adverse side effects. I haven’t been using the pen for long so not getting the full benefits just yet. But l am happy to have been prescribed the pen as it’s so easy to use. I tried normal syringe method of injecting methotrexate but was unable to press down plunger due to my hands being affected by arthritis. This method is so easy, doesn’t need to be kept refrigerated & l cannot recommend it enough. If you are given the opportunity to receive methotrexate in this manner go for it. You won’t regret it.
