Methotrexate

So Ds started mtx with injection a month ago from oral tablets
He was on mtx injections about 5 years ago and didn't mind the shots too much
This time he kept complaining of the shots burning
I found out the vials were preservative FREE
Which is why it burned
Just switched to mtx with preservatives
No burn
Much easier
Kiddo already has humira shots twice a week that burn
