Hi I am on week 4 with methotrexate tablets. I have a bit of a sore mouth and a cough. I got a mouth wash to help. Just wondered if anyone could tell me if you have self injection do you still get these issues. I don't have any other side effects thankfully.


  • Yes you can still get these as side effects , worth mentioning your cough to your nursing team so they can advise if new chest xray is needed to be on the safe side as rare side effect can effect the lungs x
