  • I took methotrexate for a month..I came out in itchy rash & skin on my hands started peeling..major reaction too..!!! I also have been to my pip assessment..not a tribunal..did you get turned down 1st assessment?? I was there for 2 hours..I was honest told them exactly how it affected my life..I also had a support worker with me.that helped...they were thorough but understanding..I received enhanced pip..hope this helps you

  • Just had my mtx upped to 8 x 2.5mg plus a lot of other tabs. I do experience the hot flushes hoping they don't get too unbearable. What is PIP if you don't mind me asking?

  • PIP is the new name for disability living allowance I am also waiting for my assessment I'm really worried I have one kidney and detrusor over activity my bladder is in overdrive. I have Botox injections to calm it down every 9-12 months. But at the moment I gave to take change of cloths, everything and be near a bathroom as I need to go every 20 mins or I am needing to change my cloths. It's a very embarrassing problem . Anyway I mustn't grumble there are others worse off than me

  • Thanks for clarifying. Hope it all works out for you too.

  • I'm currently on 25mg mtx and just started with the red hot face flushing. My skin has become very dry since starting on mtx but, so far, no spottiness. I reckon people must think I'm on the change again! If this is the only side effect I'm grateful.
