    I took methotrexate for 6 months but it didn't have any positive effects unfortunately. I suffered from really bad nausea and my hair was falling out too. I'm now on Humira instead but haven't seen significant improvement yet. Each person reacts differently to each medication and lots of people have success. Just a case of trial and error. Good luck with the methotrexate and I hope it has a positive outcome for you.

    Hi,

    I have Crohn's in the small intestine, but I've never been of methotrexate I am on Azathioprine the pill and after six months for me it is working well. My c-reactive protein is 0.6 which my GI says no inflammation. I really happy but I do have a narrowing and bad adhesions which pull when laying down and sitting for long periods of time or stretching. Nothing can be done for these right now. I do not want surgery again as I have had 4 surgeries and this last one in 2015 of March was enough. I take vitamin d3, dha, multivitamins, coq10. Everyones body is different when it comes to medication. Hope your find one that will work for you.

    We with crohn's stick together and can help each other get through this. It's a life long road.
