Been on methotrexate very successfully for over 15 years and lead a very active and fulfilling life. Over the last 12 months I have started the menopause and not sure whether to consider HRT. To complicate matters I suffered a pulmonary embolism 18 months ago so you can see my concerns. Has anyone got any advice they would be willing to share?
Methotrexate and the menopause: Been on methotrexate... - NRAS
15 years of RA cured with a dental operation: I would check for dental infections, with cavita scan. My 15 years RA was cured since my dental surgery on 22 October. Offically received a phone call today confirming my CRP factor is 8 therefore they ask me to be off my meds. I have been off since 6 october for the operation. I also had 10 years gum disease, so I would be checking for dental infections, mercury poisoning and metal allergy. I also has metal amalgam replaced. All in al 6k pounds of work, but got 15 years of RA cure. Pricelless. I used to take methotrexade and cimzia replaced by Tocizulab this year. I am off them now. Go get a cavitat scan on a holitic dentist. Call first and ask if they have cavitat scan.Not all have them. I had an histeroctomy because of cancer cells found and I atributed that to a cream they gaver me once called vagi foam several months before the issue, so I would be very carefull with any cream or meds that contains estrogen it can cause cancer. Thanks God i am clean and ok now. My aim is to be off any meds or any suplements with time. Good luck.
Hi there Stellap, I WAS on MTX ( not now) and I was on HRT during that time. My stomach rejected the MTX but I don't think that had any relation to HRT. With you having had a lung problem it all gets a bit tricky re different meds. I would strongly advise you to go to your menopause clinic for advice and they should liaise with Rheumatologist and your GP regarding your present medication. Hope this is helpful. Xx
