Good evening.

Just got back from a dermatologist appointment and they've suggested, amongst a different regime, taking Methotrexate. 

Has anyone else been on this? He told me to look into it and make sure i was happy before committing, it seems a pretty strong drug with some fairly serious side effects. 

Anyone got any opinions?

Thanks.

I haven't tried it, to be honest this is the first I've heard of it, usually my GP prescribes diprobase emollient and thats it 🤷🏻‍♀️

I'm a bit against it to be honest. 

I know they're rare, but ANY of those side effects are worse than eczema. 

Plus I have my son being born in a few weeks so dont think I should be starting a strong medication right now, especially if it could affect my mood, health or sleep etc.

Interested to know what others think.
