I was diagnosed with lung sarcoidosis in January 2013 after tests including a bronchoscopy. I have been on prednisolone, omeprazole and alondronic acid for the last 2.5 years. Every time the steroid dose has bees reduced, theming function test has shown worse results. Due to the continued use of steroids , I have developed high blood pressure and high blood sugar and am taking additional medication for these. The consultant has now suggested changing the main medication to methotrexate. He thinks I will need methotrexate for about a year. Anyone been through anything similar?what what are the side effects of methotrexate that I should be prepared for. I am 48 years of age.
