Advice & Tips: Methotrexate injections have been more beneficial than the oral form. The side effects are way less on injections. It still makes me feel slow and sleepy for a day or two after but not nauseous. When I was taking the oral form I would always only be able to sleep for six hours, then have to take a nap two hours after I would get up the day after I took the weekly dose. I had to stop taking my shot because I got a lung infection.
