I suffer with chronic asthma and seem to have taken every medication available over the years. Last year I managed 5 mepo injections before the side effects became too much. Just before christmas I had a terrible attack/exacerbation of my asthma resulting in another hospital stay. My consultant who is great has prescribed methotrexate tablets as a steriod sparing treatment. I have been daily steriods for over 10 years. Is anyone else on methotrexate for their asthma? If so has it helped? I'm not looking forward to taking these tablets as lots of people seem to have nasty side effects but Im willing to try anything to feel better!
