  • Hi Darina Gilley Chesterton every child reacts differently, I can say for my daughter her energy level is low the day following medication and sometimes complains of a slight upset stomache but never vomits, best of luck.

  • If she does have symptoms, taking an anti nausea medication with MTX may be beneficial. Talk to your physician.

  • Hi Darina, my daughter is 3 and has been fine. All the best!

  • My daughter is 9 and never took the pills went straight to the shots. Your doc said she had had to many kids get sick on the pills and tolerate the shot better. The shots have been GREAT no progression in 8 months!! Good Luck!

  • My daughter will get nauseous and have a bad stomach she the next day. She takes 10 pills a week.

  • we went straight to the shots as well. Only have done 1 round and she had a little stomach ache. So hopeful this will help her feel better. Our joint pain is what we fear the most.
