In Reply to: psoriatic Arthritis posted by kathryn on October 14, 1999 at 15:37:17:

: Just recently I went to the rheumtoid doctor about my psoriatic arthritis. He said that my case was serious and that if I didn't do something my hands and my hips would not be able to function much. He wants me to go on the Methotrexate. I do not want to harm my immune system and my liver so I am looking for an alternative. Can someone help??

Kathryn,

I have been taking methotrexate for about 4 or 5 years. I know every medication can act differently to different people, but i have had no
increased rate of illness. As A matter of fact it has been a long time since i have had any cold or flu at all. The only thing that i have experienced was a little fatigue
which was taken care of by taking folic acid. Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any other questions

Ron
