My first routine blood test

Hi all,

I recently started methotrexate and I will go tomorrow to my first blood test. Maybe it is a silly question but, since the test is the same day I take the medicine, should I take the medicine before the test or not?

Also, should I eat something or it does not matter?

    I would take my meds at my usual time and do make sure you eat - some people go a bit woozy with blood tests and that's the last thing you want isn't it?

    Sure it will go well but 🤞 for you
