Hello, have recently had a bad psoriatic arthritis flare , and am due to start Methtrexate in a couple of weeks. Read some scary things online, perhaps a little knowledge is a dangerous thing! but then I wouldn't have found this site if I had'nt gone looking. I am a bit shellshocked as not once in my appt with the consultant did she tell me that I would have to take Methotrexate for life,which seems to be the case. Nor did she mention taking folic acid, I shall ask about that at appt. I have been really lucky to get to 58 with no serious illnesses, but still I must admit that I am finding this scary - what an age to discover I'm chicken-hearted! Wishing everyone a good day .
