    I'm writing in hopes of maybe finding answers for my 77 yr old grandma. All in a year's time she found out she has a type of lung cancer that spreads to other organs, which has since gotten in her bones. She started the Opdivo immunotherapy treatments and for the better part of the course of treatment, she's done great. She has recently for the better part of 3 months now been declining rapidly! After many hospital stays for "UTI's", sepsis, and lastly a rehab facility, the hospitalist at the rehab facility saw a big red flag on her combinations of methotrexate and xeljanz and immediately took her off of them both! Before these 2 medications, she use to get the Orencia infusions. For whatever reason she stopped those and has been on the methotrexate & xeljanz for over a year. After reading up on methotrexate toxicity and the major interaction warnings for the two, and reading numerous horror stories of just methotrexate toxicity in older patients, I'm really feeling like this maybe her problem! I'm just looking for any answer from anyone who may have had any serious side effects to either drug alone or especially in combination! Thank you

  • Hi, I have been taking Methotrexate for many years...

    Hi, I have been taking Methotrexate for many years and was just diagnosed with a mass on the right side of the Laryngeal cavity. I have had a huge increase in sleep apnea episodes, along with an increase in asthma attacks. While the doctor was evaluating me they discovered a large mass in the back of my mouth/throat area and I have been referred to a Ear, Nose and Throat specialist next week. Not sure if this is related to Methotrexate used to manage my RA, but I did review the note my doctor sent over to the specialist that I am a patient on Methotrexate with a Laryngeal mass on the right side. I did some research on this drug and voila just discovered that there may be other people out there who have experienced the same situation. I am worried about this and hoping to consult with other patients, as to what to expect. Please note, I have not been evaluated by the specialist yet, just my own doctor, but he did bring in 3 other people in his office to view what is in the back of my throat cavity and he took pictures to send to some other doctors. Let's just say that makes me very worried, especially after reading up on Methotrexate connection to Laryngeal cancer. Keep the faith!

  • I was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis...

    I was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I was first prescribed sulfasalazine but didn't improve on it after 7 weeks. My doc recently switched me to methotrexate and folic acid. She also gave me meloxicam and predisone to take as needed. I have not taken these last two.

    I've literally been on the methotrexate (4 pills taken one day a week) for 2 weeks. I'm not sure when tot expect it to start showing signs of working. Also, my face started breaking out in the next couple of days after taking the 2nd dose of methotrexate. I am feeling frustrated, and don't want to stop but also don't want to deal with the breakouts. Does anyone have any similar reactions to the medication?

    Thanks you very much.

  • Methotrexate and Acne

    I started a low dose (10 mg) of methotrexate for rheumatoid arthritis last week and noticed this week, after taking my second does, that my face is breaking out. Does anyone have any similar experiences? I also take 5 mg of folic acid daily.

    Thanks for any help you can offer up.
