I stumbled across this forum whilst looking for information about Methotrexate.
I have suffered from Psoriatic Athritis for many years, having Steroid injections in my early 20's etc. I am now 38 and see a consultant at my local hospital.
I have been taking Sulphasalazine for about 18 months now, but this doesn't seem to be having any effect.
Another one of my joints has now been attacked and I cannot straighten yet another one of my limbs because of the swelling and pain etc. and on a recent visit to see the consultant, he has suggested that I continue with Sulphasalazine, but also start to take Methotrexate.
Having read some of the comments in this forum, I am now scared to death and am very unsure what to do.
Is it worth the (seemingly) horrific side effects that some of you have had.
Any advice would be very much appreciated, as I go back to see the nurse next week so that she can advise me of what happens next and it would be helpful to be armed with some advice.
