    Methotrexate for Rheumatism

    Side effects that I have to deal with: extremely high risk of infection, frequent relapses after the symptoms of an infection have resolved, occasional painful inflammations in the mouth, severe weight fluctuations Especially the increased tendency to infections is an extremely disturbing side effect. Although this side effect should be relatively rare and is usually not dangerous (unless you have the bad luck to get infected with something really bad), it is for the person experiencing it, however, a torment. It hinders me very often in my education, brings me missing days and makes life sometimes inedible. Imagine that you are in a vicious circle: If you do not take the medication, the knee becomes fat and you are in pain, you can barely move, the bone breaks down more and more and the danger is eventually reached in the wheelchair end (at least in my case). But if you take it the way you should, you are constantly choking. You have a guilty conscience because you are constantly lacking in the workplace and when you get sick you inflict more damage on yourself and others. Occasions, excursions, celebrations that you were looking forward to, often fall into the water, because you have a cold again. One begins to live in constant fear of the next cold and feels altogether unhealthy, unclean and unwell. Of course it does not have to be like mine, but the list of possible side effects is much longer and one of them is definitely caught. On the other hand, it worked fine with me, as it should work. Within two to three weeks, my swollen knee shrank back to normal size, the pain disappeared and I was able to walk normally again. The first time I did not notice any colds and was glad to suddenly lose a lot. In the beginning I got the methotrexate administered with injections and gladly accepted that these injections were very painful. My doctor has since reduced the dose twice because of my problems and has switched to tablets to meet me. Surprisingly, I tolerate the tablets well, but the effects are not reduced by these measures until now. You should think about treatment with methotrexate beforehand and consider whether it is really necessary and whether there are not alternatives that are less harmful to the body and the immune system. Anyone who thinks about treatment with methotrexate, I can only guess: Find out exactly, get a thorough check before and do not take this medicine lightly.

    Methotrexate for Rheumatism

    I have prescribed MTX because of my collagenosis as a basic therapy with prednisolone. If you can inject yourself, it is easy to use. Tablets are said to have much worse side effects. At first I had only a headache and abdominal pressure, later came to nausea and dizziness and finally I could not get up the next day, have it extra evening before falling asleep, have broken. The hair was up to 3 months after that. My period lasted from 4 days to about 8 days, and the bleeding was very severe. Also, bleeding occurred. These symptoms, however, all proceed immediately after discontinuation.
