Anyone here taking methotrexate for autoimmune issues?


Recommended Posts

I have rheumatoid arthritis and I am currently in the worst flare of my life. I can’t even brush my own hair. My rheumatologist wants me to take methotrexate but I am terrified. I’ve read it can cause serious lung issues and I can hardly breathe as it is. I’m so sad! Anyone?

My mum has rheumatoid arthritis,copd and bronchiectasis and is on oxygen she tried methotrexate and it made her worse so she now takes leflunomide and it seems to work for her, I hope this helps and I really hope you feel better soon all the best Take care Justin
