    I have no reaction to this drug. I have not lost or gained weight. I have not lost any of my hair. I have been nauseated a few times and stomach burning if I don't take the medication with milk or food.

    I took methotrexate pills but they upset my stomach. I switched to injectable methotrexate and have used for about 6 years. It has worked well for me. I also take Naproxen.
