Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 day ago):

  • Trying to determine if the timing of these drugs- especially the weekly mtx- should be staggered during the day to ensure they are appropriately absorbed. Periodic seizures continue- about once a quarter.

  • From this study (4 days ago):

  • Dosage for methotrexate is 15 to 17 mg. over ten year period.
    Have been taking about 800 mg. of frolic acid per day, plus whatever occurs naturally in food.
    For about a year have been dealing with urinary retention. Don't know if there is a connection.
    Will be seeing my doctor tomorrow .

    Also take generic Zantac

  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • I wish to switch out budesonide, which is $1000 per month, to try boswellia serrata instead. I have had success in the past with boswellia for joint pain.

    I have rheumatoid arthritis and collagenous colitis.
