I was diagnosed with RA about 2 years after having a serious car accident which left me with back injuries and PTSD. It is thought that the PTSD triggered the RA as I had never had previous symptoms. I was 60 years old at the time of the accident in 2010. Initially the RA was treated with steroids then after some weeks Methotrexate was introduced. This was in 2013. The following year my left hip had to be replaced due to avascular necrosis as a result of steroid treatment. Just one month ago my right hip was replaced (June2016). I have been doing rehabilitation excercises and have found that I have had vastly increased hip pain the last two Monday's - and these have been my methotrexate days. I am currently on 20mg every Monday. Has anyone else had similar muscular issues while on methotrexate?
Hi, Am curious if anybody has any reports of lamictal and milk thistle interacting? I take lamictal for Bipolar 2 disorder and want to start milk thistle as i've heard it helps your liver function better - which is obviously how the lamictal is being broken down in my body. Anyway I am concerned that the milk thistle will either increase or worse decrease the lamictal in my body - which could be dangerous. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks, Anna
