Hello everyone , I haven’t posted in a few weeks , but I have been lurking! Last time I was on here I hadn’t started my meth treatment as I was recovering from strep throat, and was waiting for my bloods and chest x Ray. That was all clear and I’ve now been nearly two weeks on it (next dose Friday 12.5mg). I just wanted to ask people’s experience of this drug and if they reduced swelling stopping or reducing so soon? I had well over a week of no swelling and was overjoyed , but my knee is quite swollen again today and im quite upset. I think I may have over did yesterday with putting my leg up on a radiator , but I just was relieved to possibly getting my flexibility back... I’m still not at my maintenance dose yet of 17.5mh if that is any help.
