I tried this yesterday and my 2 year old gagged and tried to spit it out and stuck her figers in her mouth. Her doctor told use to be careful about coming in contact with the methatrexate but its hard when you have to clean it off your kid. I was giving her injections but now she is to hard to hold done and hold still. Her doctor wanted me to try the oral method with the same methatrexate solution we were using for the injections. He said there isn't much of a taste but seeing my kids reaction after putting it in her mouth I would say it does have a bad taste.
Anyway has anyone ever tried mixing the methatrexate with something like koolaid to help with the taste?
My 21 month old grandson gets Methatrexate injections once a week, he's now being put on Embral injections as the Methatrexate has not helped. His knees, wrists, fingers, toes and ankles are affected. Would love to talk to someone else whose child has arthritis.
