Treating Granulomatosis Polyangitis with Prednisone and Methotrexate

Posted by bnharrod @bnharrod, Tue, May 14 8:31pm

I have just been diagnosed with Wegener’s disease / granulomatosis polyangiitis (gpa) and started on regimen of Prednisone and Methotrxate. I am wondering if this is the appropriate group to share questions and experiences with those who have walked this same path. Thank you.

@bnharrod, Good Morning (It is morning where I live) and Welcome to Mayo Connect. I am not familiar with Wegener's disease, however I have located a discussion where members are sharing their experiences. The discussion mentions treatment with both methotrexate and prednisone, so I want to refer you to it. You just need to click on this link and you will be taken directly to the discussion where you will meet others with this condition.

Do you have specific questions you are trying to get answered on methotrexate and prednisone treatments or side effects?
