Hi there,
I live in the UK so was pleased to see a UK forum here. Thanks for starting it :)
I have got coup de sabre linear morphea, running from my eyebrow to my forehead.
I'm taking methotrexate for it, and IV steoid infusions.
Anyone dealt with this kind of thing, or these drugs?
Any advice much appreciated!

Hello LookingUp

Welcome to the forums and sorry for not welcoming you yesterday!

We have a lot of information on site about en coupe sabre, linear morphea that may be of interest to you including personal storied from people living with the conditions.

I have systemic, morphea and bullous morphea and I am also on methotrexate. I started out on mycophenolate but couldn't tolerate it hence taking methotrexate instead. Apart from it making me very tired sometimes I haven't noticed any side effects, have you?

Take care and keep posting.
