    Hi @bubblegum226

    Thank you for posting on the forum.

    I’m so sorry to hear that you are ‘full of cold’ and its getting you down.  Methotrexate can interact with various other drugs including NSAID’s (these are sometimes contained in cold remedies). It would be best to speak to your GP or pharmacist before taking anything. I’ve included the link to our methotrexate information where there is a part called ‘taking other medicines’ which might be helpful for you.

    If you want to hear about the experiences of other’s you might like to repost on the ‘living with arthritis’ forum.

    You are very welcome to call us on our helpline: 0800 5200 520 (weekdays 9am- 6pm) here we can take our time to talk informally and in confidence, sometimes a listening ear can be helpful.

    I hope this is helpful.

    Best wishes
