Hi all, would anyone be able to tell me the difference between Mycophenolate and Methotrexate as they seem very similar apart from the Jaundice from Methotrexate.
I'm 21 and was diagnosed at 16, currently on Mycophenolate and have been for 1-2 years now, I don't really have any side effects from it however this year I have been feeling not quite myself health wish. I developed pericarditis in February and have been suffering with foot inflammation this year, plus the normal lupus symptoms... fatigue, rheumatic pains in fingers, knees, neck etc... but worse than it has been in the past.
My Rheumy suggested that I change to Methotrexate but I feel a bit worried about it as it seems stronger and the effects seem a lot worse. I even need to attend a lesson about it before taking it! Anyone had any experience with either / or both medications? It would be much appreciated!
