Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Our 6 year old was diagnosed 4 years ago, polyarticular JRA. She did about 1 year of sulfasalazine combined with prednisone. Then the next year was prednisone and methotrexate. We came of off prednisone in March and remain on 7.5mg of methotrexate once a week.

    She is extremely hyper. She NEVER sits still and is constantly bouncing around. She can't even sit down/sit still long enough to eat a meal.

    We thought that she would calm down a few months after coming off of prednisone since she was on it for 2 years, but that didn't happen. Now we are curious as to whether the hyperness is a result of the methotrexate or a permanent result of the prednisone. Any guidance is appreciated.

    Thank you

    Took this for 6 days, tapering at the end to treat a rash caused by a spider bite. The heartburn started on day 1 but the other symptoms didn't begin until day 4. None we're severe but they weren't fun either. The blurred vision was worst.
