Subject: Sulfasalazine & Methotrexat combination

Hi all,

Was seen yesterday by my Rheumy, we are looking at me going on to anti-tnf soon (6 weeks time), but she has asked me to start taking a Sulfasalazine & Methotrexate combi for the next 6 weeks until i see her again.

I'm being investigated for not stop heartburn at the moment hence the delay.

I took both medications last night at 8'ish and within 3 hours i was rushing to the toliet to be sick and almost fainted, when i got up this morning at 6 for my commute to London, i was sick again and felt ready to collapse, so went back to bed.

Has anyone taken the same combi before and how did you find it?
I've been on both separately before but not together.
