Today I found out there is a strong correlation between taking Methotrexate and PD.
I was on the drug for Rheumatoid Arthritis for a few years before being diagnosed with PD. Now it seems PD is a side effect of the drug if you had been on it 6 months or more, particularly females 60 years and over.
Just great news isn't it. As it turned out I am in the fortunate 10% whose RA didn't devastatingly increase....I don't know which is the worst but wish I had known more about this insidious drug all those years ago.
