I was diagnosed with Takeyasu Arteritis in Nov 2017. Originally on a reducing dose of Prednislone but relapsed at 5 mgs and Methotrexate was introduced.
The booklet I received on taking the Methotrexate said that you should restrict alcohol in-take to within the recommended weekly in-take unless you were taking it for psoriasis (can’t spell it!). Posts I’ve read on this forum say acolohol and Methotrexate are a no-no so a bit confused
I know that Methotrexate, like alcohol, can affect your liver but monthly blood tests so far say liver function normal.
Reading other posts I consider myself fairly lucky with this condition but there are many things I can no longer do because of sore arms and tiredness and to no longer be able to have a drink well I don’t want to sound dramatic!!!
Just as a side - why is it that Methotrexate is preferably to Prednislone? I was quite happy on 10mgs Prednislone but Methotrexate was introduced to enable me to reduce the steroid in spite of the fact it can have awful side effects.
