Hi I'm a recovered anorexic which I've been anorexic for nigh on 30 years. I have just been diagnosed with RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS. The specialist I saw last week has put me on methotrexate 15mg once a week. And 5mg folic acid once a week. My main concern is that methotrexate will trigger my anorexia. I'm also on 4mg diagram at night, more when go to dentist. 45mg mirtazapine at night. Omeprazole 20mg and Colofac 180mg twice daily before food, fexofenadinefor for hayfever and dust allergies. Pilocarpine 2% eye drops twice daily for glaucoma.
I'm also worried about the effects of methotrexate on my mental health side as well. Clinical depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder. As well as Anorexia which I've already mentioned. I'm also prone to being anemic. I've had one deep vein thrombosis in left leg about 2004ish. So more concerns. I will be seeing RA practitioner next week before starting methotrexate and folic acid treatment. So I'll ask about these then to. But would appreciate any thoughts, advice, etc. Please. Thank you.
