Methotrexate Fall Reviews

Mon, 21 Feb 2011

My 27 years of MTX therapy have prevented physical deformity but caused me to have damage to my lungs. I am short of breath on any activity. MTX helped the pain somewhat but at the cost of my lungs? I was never told about this possibility nor told it ultimately RA could be fatal. I am only in my 50's not ready to die yet!

Sat, 26 Oct 2013

has anybody had any positive affects from taking " Methoblastin " (Methotrexate) for psoaratic arthritis ? these reviews sound terrible and i have been told to go on it... im a little scared now :(

Sun, 15 May 2011

I have been on Methotrexate for almost months and last two weeks have had severe pains at times lower back , It feel like the kidneys because one side hurts at times and in the mornings it is worse.

Hi I haven't had any side effects for the past six years of Methotrexate. but recently I am having some stomach discomfort like as soon as i eat something i have the slight discomfort on my abdoman. I take a glass of green leaf juice and i am fine again. I would want to know if I should reduce the dose.
Sun, 24 Jan 2010
I just started Methotrexate, I started itching in the same areas where I had experienced itching with the chicken pox 2 years ago. I am a 51 year old female who contracted chicken pox at 49 years old. This frightens me as I know this can cause disseminated herpes which can be potentially fatal. My Rheum told me to take Benadryl. I believe this is going to be my one and only shot this drug scares the death out of me.
