Has Anybody Been Prescribed A Methotrexate?

Has Anybody Been Prescribed A Methotrexate?

Is anybody on Methotrexate now or has had some Experience with?

Not at all. It is not a pain reliever. It is a DMARD - Disease Modifying Anti-Rheumatic Drug. You should view it as an 'anti-cancer' drug in that your use needs to be monitored with blood tests to make sure it is not sending you down a hole that emergency medicine cannot pull you out of.

I've also been prescribed Methotrexate for treatment. I have psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis - among other things! I've taken the pills and self-injections. I cannot tolerate it!!! Within 2 days of the dose, my tongue swells with sore bumps on it and my mouth also gets the painful bumps. The corner of my mouth cracks and bleeds. I cannot tolerate it. It also made me lose hair and it still has not grown back! Good luck to anyone who is prescribed this medication.

Oh yes - I have a cat who's about 9 years old. I live with a daughter and her family and they have a large dog, 3 adult cats - one of which had a litter of 4 kittens at the beginning of February. It's never a dull moment around here! LoL!!!

Hi LaurieBellantThompson. Sorry to hear about Your not so great Experience with The Meth. Was once told taking a layered dose of Motrin is the same thing as a low dose of Mth.
There are varied Reviews on this Particular Drug; some Good, some Bad some in between. I don't know... I have a hard Time deciding what Topping's to get on a 6 inch at Subway...
