What did methotrexate make you feel like? I am afraid! Where can I get more info on this drug? Are there any other options (drugs)? This drug seems to be the only thing to take for Dermatomyositis. Joint pain,stomach pain,tired all the time,I can suck that up!(allergies to pain meds havent had any thing for pain in 20 years do'nt even take over the counter drugs,Why they dont work and why mess with the liver) lets kill the desease!
Here is a link to some people who have used methotrexate.
I have been taking methotrexate for about 6 months, during which I have not noticed any differences in my thought, moods or behaviours. I was and still am tired much of the time.
I started with 10 mg and moved up to 15 mg after 3 months. I was concerned about generally feeling "unwell" and extra tired. I don't notice that. I do noticed a slight overall thinning of my hair.
I take folic acid daily, a B complex and a weekly med to help avoid mouth and Tongue sores.
I was quite nervous too. So far so good-for me at least!
Good luck to you !!!
I am on cellcept and it seems to be working along with the other drugs. I could not take methotrexate because of the problems with my liver.
