Hello moms, my 3 year old son just got diagnosed with polyarticular arthritis. The doctor has put him on naproxen 2x a day, and he was also prescribed an antacid because it made him feel sick. So now after being on that for a week, they want to put him on methotrexate 3 pills 1 day a week. i have been researching the information about methotrexate and I am freaking out about what I am reading. I am scared to put him on all this medication and all the side effects. Does anyone else have a child as young as mine going through this and have any advice. Are pills better or the injections? Im so overwhelmed at this point!
