If I took a picture how would I post them here?? Now one place states blisters are common side effect while another place states life threatening?? Talk bout confused!!!
Here is a copy and paste
1 out of 5 people have to stop taking methotrexate
because of side effects.1
But these side effects are not usually serious, and methotrexate
has fewer side effects than other DMARDs. Research also shows that people find it easier to keep taking methotrexate
than some other DMARDs.8
The most common side effects are:
- Thin or brittle hair
- Acne or blisters on the skin
- Loss of appetite or weight
- Blisters in the mouth
See your doctor if you get short of breath, or develop a cough or high temperature, as these symptoms can be a sign that methotrexate
is harming your lungs.
