I have been diagnosed with RA and prescribed Methotrexate. I haven't taken any yet, but from what I've read, nausea is a common side effect.
I took my first dose this past Friday and am happy to report no negative side effects. I am curious about one possible side effect and that is that about 18 hours after I took the medicine, I was very sleepy for about 4 hours. Is that from the medicine or could that have been a coincidence?
