Customer Question
I have had uveitis three...
I have had uveitis three times now and I also have reactive arthritis and HPV. The rheumatologist wants me to start taking methotrexate. I also take lyrica up for seizure disorder. I'm trying to decide if the risks of the methotrexate are worth it.

Won't my even more weakened immune system have a more difficult time fighting the infection that causes the uveitis?

Is it going to prevent the uveitis?
Eye Doctor: Dr. Pravin, Physician replied 9 months ago

Yes definitely

As Uveitis occurs due to reactive nature ( auto immunity )

Hence this helps in preventing the auto immune uveitis.

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.

I've read that methotrexate can cause seizures. I'm being treated for seizure disorder. Also, does it help to prevent HPV from becoming cancerous?
Eye Doctor: Dr. Pravin, Physician replied 9 months ago

No it cannot prevent HPV from becoming cancerous.

Methotrexate and Lyrica can be taken together .

Methotrexate can cause Seizures when taken in very high doses and is not monitored regularly .
