    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.
