I am a student nurse, and have become interested in methotrexate. I have noticed that some of you here are taking it, presumably for your asthma - however, in my (brief thus far) research I have only found it used for cancer/lymphoma, severe psoriasis, and severe active rheumatoid arthritis. Am I correct in thinking that some of you guys take it for asthma? Can anyone give me any details on this, e.g. it's action, i.e. what it does to treat asthma, route, side effects etc?
Feel free to PM me if you'd rather not share this info with everyone, and any information you choose to give me will be kept strictly confidential, however I am not after the most personal details, mostly if I have just got the right end of the stick! Also I hope any pharmacists/doctors/qualified nurses can jump to my aid here!
Am purely asking for personal interest as I seem to have exhausted the BNF and it hasn't answered my question as to whether methotrexate is used for asthma at all!
Many thanks in advance
