I started MTX last Friday, woke up on Saturday with a horrible cough and it has progressed to a horrible cold. I'm due to take my next dose of MTX on Friday and am just wondering how sick do I need to be before I call the doctor? Does that make sense? The cold seems to be getting better but not the cough.

From what I have learned when sick while taking methotrexate. I was told to get to the doctor and get checked out. You should go on the cautious side when on metho. I was put on antibiotics and was told not to take methotrexate while on antibiotics and not to take it until I feel better.

That is what I learned when I got a horrible cold. I put a call into my rhuemy and that is what his nurse told me.

Hope you are feeling better soon.
