Just wondered if any of you lovely people have been given methotrexate and how you have coped with taking it? Following on from previous posts re my husband and suspected PMR after taking a dose of 30mg prednisone he has now had it reduced to 25mg but started on methotrexate in increasing dosage amounts over next 3 weeks (taking meds once a week) along with folic acid 5mg once a week and two tablets each day of calcium/vit D.
All his pain has gone thankfully it disappeared on the 30mg prednisone and he generally feels a lot better . The potential side effects of methotrexate are quite scary and just wondered if anyone else had had a similar situation and wondered how you got on or if you had any advice. Thankyou to everyone who takes the time to share their advice and experiences it’s all invaluable
