Some time ago they tried to give me methotrexate for my Masthenia gravis. After reading about the side effects I refused to take it.
Basically its main use is in chemotherapy and has many side effects but if your serious ill with cancer then probably better than the alternative.
Wikipedia has a good outline on its use and side effects as a starter As the causes of fibro still are not determined
to have such a powerful drug administeredI doubt if it would be prescribed for fibromyalgia.
But again talk to you medical advisors and pharmacy for their advice..

I did once, but it made me very ill. Really powerful head ache and set off all the symptoms I suffered when I had serotonin syndrome several years prior to trying this drug. So I didn't get too far with it before swearing off of it forever.
