GPA granulomatosis with polyangiitis
Just diagnosed in May, 2017. On a maintenance dose of 12.5 mg. per week of methotrexate Tapering off prednisone since May also-2.5 mg every other day for 1 more week. Was feeling fine until @ two weeks ago with starting the maintenance dose of methotrexate. For two-plus days I have side effects of extreme fatigue and tiredness and some gastrointestinal problems. Also, some insomnia. Is this normal for methotrexate? Could the symptoms be related to the steroid tapering? Thank you for considering this.
