    Default Newcomer Requesting Advice on Methotrexate

    Hi, new to this Board. Been living with lupus for about 5 years, but it really got bad the last 2 years. Going to start methotrexate this week and am looking for any folks who take this to respond with their experiences and side effects.

    Much thanks,

    LDG

    Default Hi, LDG

    If you go back to the main forum list, and look in the forum called lupus medications, you will find quite a few posts about methotrexate that may help answer some of your questions.

    Hi LDG,
    I've been on Methotrexate now for around 5 years. When I first started taking it I got severe mouth ulcers. I literally had ulcers all through my mouth and on the inside of my lips. I had to get some special ulcer cream from the chemist and adjust my dosage.

    Over the years my dosage got built up to a fairly high dose and then my rheumy changed it to having weekly injections to see if that would help me more. It did a little bit but I hated the injections and we agreed to stop them. I'm back onto a weekly dose of the tablets.
