coop_mom reminded me of a question I've wanted to ask, but always seem to forget to post..........

Why is Methotrexdate prescribed for SLE or SjS? What is the purpose? Is it used in conjunction with or as an alternative to Plaquenil or Prednisone? What are the qualifiers to be prescribed MTX?

Please educate me!

Go check out my reply to Brandichi's question about MTX. It might answer yours, too.
