Hi everyone, my name's Lucia and I've been diagnosed with Lupus for...wow, 2 years now. I'm 24 years old and I've been bounced around by this disease quite a bit already. The latest thing is giving Methotrexate a shot after CellCept was shown to do absolutely nothing to help me. Anyway, it's nice to meet you all!

Hi Lucia;
Welcome to our family! You are not alone, quite of few members are either unable to tolerate Cellcept or found that the drug was not helpful at all. I do hope that MTX works for you. Did your doctor make you aware of the side effects that you might expect? If not, you can put "Methotrexate" in the search bar above and all posts dealing with that subject will come up. You will most likely find a wealth of information about it as well as how others experienced it and advice on how to manage the side effects.
I am glad that you joined our family! We are here to help in any way that we can.

Peace and Blessings
