    Ive been taking methatrexate for 7 months 20mg as a single weekly dose,....This was upped to 30mg as it didn't seem to be working as well as expected,...Iv'e only taken the 30mg dose twice then cut it back myself because of increasing breathlessness to 20mg again,...I contacted the rheumatologist who told me to see my GP and arrange a chest xray and in the meantime stop the methotrexate,...Iv'e seen my GP and had a heart trace which was normal and am going for the xray tomorrow but in the meantime if I don't take the methatrexate what am I going to do

  • I have taken Methotrexate (20mg/week) since Novemb...

    I have taken Methotrexate (20mg/week) since November 2015. Previously I had never had a bladder infection, but 4 months after the first dose of Methotrexate I developed a bladder infection for the first time. Since then I have often had a bladder infection and the intervals between the infections is ever decreasing. Today I went to my consultant to ask if I could change my medication, as I have now realised the cause for the infections could be the Methotrexate, but she said that it is most unlikely that the Methotrexate is the cause. However, I can half my dose to see if there is any improvement. Has anybody with the same complaint changed their medication successfully?

    I have been taking Methotrexate 15 mgs for Rheumatoid arthritis since 2013. In
    2016 I started getting a burning sensation , sensitivity and pain in my left foot. In February 2017 I started getting a burning sensation and discomfort in my breasts , similar to the discomfort I am experiencing in my foot. Has anyone had the same symptoms and if so how was it treated?
    Thank you
