Methotrexate and headaches
I have RA and my dose of methotrexate was increased to 25mg a week just before Christmas. I also take 5mg folic acid weekly. Over the last two or three weeks I have woken up several times with an absolutely thumping headache which can take 4 or 5 hours to go (3 mornings in the last week!). I have been taking paracetamol tablets to ease the pain. I would like to know whether the headaches are linked to the increased dose. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks.
