My doctor took me off Methotrexate because I got severe headaches, which I am now not sure if it was from that or not. She is now going to try me on Sulfasalazine. Does anyone have any experience with this drug? My PC physician has also upped my dose of prednisone from10 to 40 mg per day for 5 days due to muscle spasms in my neck/shoulder area.
I haven't taken sulfasalazine but the link below has a few reviews, which you may find useful.
I did for two weeks. I am not an anxiety type of person, but I was on this stuff. I didn't notice much of a difference... but not every body responds the same. I can not tolerate methotrexate due to feeing nauseous after I did injection till the following injection day! :o( Hope it works for you!! :o)
