Has Anybody Developed Fibrosis Of The Liver Due To Methetrexate I Have Waiting To See A Consultant ?

Stay away from Methotrexate and Neotigarson. If prescribed ask the doctor/dermatologist about the side effects. Both can affect the liver and kidneys, especially Neo. You notice the kidney pain after about a month. You are not supposed to drink alcohol while taking MTX. I was never told this when prescribed. Needless to say neither MTX or Neo have worked for me.
