    Dear Jean

    Thank you for your posting on the forum. If you follow the link http://www.arc.org.uk/arthinfo/patpubs/6247/6247.asp this will lead you to information on methotrexate and alcohol but as everyone’s case is individual your friend should speak to their rheumatologist about drinking alcohol while on methotrexate.
    I hope this is helpful.

    Best Wishes
    Dawn
