Methotrexate Infection Causes and Reviews


Having HIV/AIDS weakens your body's immune system. It destroys the white blood cells that fight Infection. This puts you at risk for opportunistic Infections (OIs). OIs are serious Infections that take advantage of your weak immune system. These Infections are less common and less severe in healthy people.

There are many types of OIs:

  • Bacterial Infections, including tuberculosis and a serious related disease, Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC)
  • Viral Infections, such as cytomegalovirus (CMV) and hepatitis C
  • Fungal Infections, like yeast Infections, cryptococcal meningitis, pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) and histoplasmosis
  • Parasitic Infections, such as crypto (cryptosporidiosis) and toxo (toxoplasmosis)

Having HIV/AIDS can make Infections harder to treat. People with HIV/AIDS are also more likely to have complications from common illnesses such as the flu.

You can help prevent Infections by taking your HIV/AIDS medicines. Other things that can help include practicing safe sex, washing your hands well and often, and cooking your food thoroughly.


Methotrexate Infection Reviews

Sat, 18 Dec 2010
I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis about 4 years ago when I was 13 or 14, they looked at me and said I had it, they didn't do any blood tests and when they did, nothing showed. But they started me on about 5 mg of Methotrexate, Prednisone, and Naproxen. I was on Methotrexate for about two years, and by the end of that time they had me on about 10 mg through self injection. Then they said that they had misdiagnosed me and I had "hypermobility syndrome" and said I would "grow out of it in time." My long term side effects are now gastrointestinal problems, malnourishment, weight loss of 20+ pounds, candidiasis (yeast Infection in esophagus), and insomnia recently.
