Meds List

These are the medications I'm taking and for what.

Methotrexate - I'm taking anywhere from 15mg to 25mg a week of this chemo to help my Rheumatoid Arthritis. It make me dizzy for a short period of time, makes me nauseas / no appetite, tired, weak.
Prednisone - 10mg a day. This is a steroid. For most people it suppresses your immune system, but since my immune system attacks itself, it helps my immune system. It also helps with inflammation of my joints. The side effects are horrible though. It helps me eat, which is a nice reversal from the Methotrexate, but it also makes me gain a lot of weight. I'm up to 153 now, and my usual weight is pretty evenly 137. This is in a span of two months.. It also gives you what is referred to as 'moon face'.. Have you seen Jerry Lewis lately? Yeah. He took a LOT of pred. It also makes it difficult to sleep, and it's beginning to make me really antisocial, lonely, paranoid, and just generally annoyed at people - which really sucks. Usually I love going to Halo night, but last night I was just uncomfortable and annoyed.
Oxycodone - 5mg, twice daily. I usually cut the pills in half and take them 4 times a day instead, though. Which - the doctor would kill me if he knew I did that, but the pills just don't last long enough to help with the pain. If I take a whole one it lasts like 3 hours, then what do I do for pain the rest of the day?
Seasonale - birth control.

For awhile I was also taking Sudafed because I was sick.. Bleh.
