    Have you read this page Vicky?  I have never heard of Morphoea and looked it up.

    I hope the MTX [Methotrexate] helps.

    Hi Vicky,

    What dose are you on ?

    I am on 20mgs MTX and 5 mgs Folic Acid.

    Been on it since May 2002, bit of an old lag on this.

    I take the Folic Acid every day but not on the MTX day.

    Was stressed to me that the Folic Acid was very important.

    My repeat prescriptions alway say once a week for the Folic Acid, but the consultant said every day.

    You need to check with your consultant on the Folic Acid.

    I have never had any side effects like some have had, i do believe it's the Folic Acid that helps.

      I was taking MTX and Folic acid but had to stop recently.

      The folic acid helps with nausea.  I only took it once a week.  I was fortunate, I didn't suffer from nausea.

      I took MTX for 18 months and it helped with my Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid but I developed severe joint pains and stopped taking it.  The pain is gradually lessening.
