I have taken methotrexate for over 8 years total. Almost 5 years this round. Except for some nausea 36 hours after the dose for the first couple of weeks and then some more when my dose was increased I have had no side effects from the metho. We take it at a much lower dose than what cancer patients take that the side effects listed on the drug fact sheet really mostly apply to them.

You will read more methotrexate problem posts here than what is generally true across the lupus population. People who do very well with their medications are mostly too busy to spend much time here posting on the forums.

Take care,
