This is for all of us Methotrexate injectors.
I went to my rheumy Clinic yesterday for my injection (they are waiting to arrange a delivery date so I can do them at home) and my nurse was telling me that she had been to a meeting the day before. Basically there is a new EU directive.. The brussel sprout brigade have decided that everyone on injections will be changing to pens (like epi pens) soon. This has just been rolled out across Germany and will be here within the next yr or so.
I think the pens will be a much easier option for any people that struggle with the syringes but I have to admit that I can't stop thinking that it will surely cost more. The pens are three times the size of the syringes. They have to be more expensive? ?
I would've been happy to just leave things as they were.
My nurse was saying that some people may be really worried about switching and need re-training.. More nhs expense.
I know that there are some people that will worry. Maybe the older generations etc.
