    Methotrexate for Chronic polyarthritis

    Have the drug for several years with breaks and changes. Only as a tablet, I fell into a brief coma and was constantly sweating. After the coma was then discontinued and set a few months in lesser quantity again. I got her once a week. However, I eventually became so bad that my parents had to hide the pills because I had to vomit as soon as I saw the box. Hair also fell increasingly. So set off again. 1-2 years later I got it as a syringe. No side effects, just because she had to muscle, I had to go to a doctor every 2 weeks.

    Side effects: Hair loss; Nausea

    Methotrexate for Arthritis

    The day after the WEEKLY intake I had stomach problems and was very tired, the concentration and vision was limited. Now I take the drug 15mg in three doses three days a week and have so far tolerated it well. Since last week, the initial symptoms occur again. The hair has become quite thin, i. Many hairs have failed. However, bald spots have not formed. I always had a lot of hair. I have not eaten anything since the last week. Well, for some time I can stand it, I’m definitely too fat.

    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.
