Recently started Methotrexate
Just a quick question, I had my first dose of methotrexate last Sunday after an appointment on Friday with my rheumatologist… I was originally taking Sulfasalizine but I’m still in pain and my ESR and CRP levels are still high, so we’ve gone onto 15mg of Methotrexate. Apart from feeling sick and tired I haven’t been feeling too bad, but for the last couple of days I’ve gotten this dry scratchy throat, keep coughing and when I breathe in it sounds like my throats closed a little and it’s a bit chesty, but I can still breathe ok! Is this common, has anyone else experienced it? (Negative lateral flow test too - As I work in the hospital so have to take daily tests)
I’m due to take my next dose in the morning and I’m panicking it’ll make it worse!
Any advice would be much appreciated :)
