Methotrexate Pneumonia Causes and Reviews


Pneumonia is an infection in one or both of the lungs. Many germs, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, can cause Pneumonia. You can also get Pneumonia by inhaling a liquid or chemical. People most at risk are older than 65 or younger than 2 years of age, or already have health problems.

Symptoms of Pneumonia vary from mild to severe. See your doctor promptly if you

  • Have a high fever
  • Have shaking chills
  • Have a cough with phlegm that doesn't improve or gets worse
  • Develop shortness of breath with normal daily activities
  • Have chest pain when you breathe or cough
  • Feel suddenly worse after a cold or the flu

Your doctor will use your medical history, a physical exam, and lab tests to diagnose Pneumonia. Treatment depends on what kind you have. If bacteria are the cause, antibiotics should help. If you have viral Pneumonia, your doctor may prescribe an antiviral medicine to treat it.

Preventing Pneumonia is always better than treating it. Vaccines are available to prevent pneumococcal Pneumonia and the flu. Other preventive measures include washing your hands frequently and not smoking.

Methotrexate Pneumonia 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. I am 3 days shy of talking another blood test. Is there anything I can do other than drink a lot of water. Thank you

Sat, 20 Dec 2008
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.
