Re: Methotrxate and Lung Involvement
Ra normally makes you very, very fatigued and can affect the lungs as well. So it might be the Ra and not the drug. I've been on MTX for over 6 years with my main problem being GI problems. But I stop it and take a vacation from the drug for a month or 2 and then I'm fine to re-start. I take it along with the biologic drug, Orencia.
Call your doc and ask what to do and if they think it's the drug or the Ra. MTX can affect the lungs so it's important to know which it is.
