Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 hours ago):
Parkinsons has become worse lately. Dry eyes. Indigestion.
From this study (2 days 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 (5 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
