Arthritis and Rheumatism
I do what my doctor told me to do and so does my friend but when got to different opinions. My doctor told me to inject my methotrexate IM but my friends doctor told her SQ. Could it be done either way?
Methotrexate may be injected either subcutaneously (SC or SQ) or intramuscularly (IM).
