Been on cyclosporine for about 3 weeks now and I will be switching next month for a multitude of reasons. First, the side effects keep fluctuating in that some days, the nausea is unbearable and sometimes, it's non existent. Secondly, while I initially responded to cyclosporine the first 2 weeks, they are coming back now with a vengeance; almost as though my body is fighting back against the drug. Thirdly, because of my body weight, my dose is too high and while my skin is messed up already, I'd love to keep my kidneys and nervous system intact.
Sorry for the long preamble but my question is this: has any one used methotrexate for chronic urticaria or cholinergic urticaria? If so:
How long did it take to achieve symptom relief?;
We're you concurrently on steroids?;
How long were you on it till you achieved remission or are you still on it and if so, are you in remission?;
If you've stopped using it and are in remission, how long have you been hive free?;
What side effects did you experience?
Feel free to TL;DR and just skim.
Thanks guys :-)
