Can you take your methatrexate on the same day as a depomedrone injection?

I was diagnosed with RA 4 weeks ago (anti ccp 471) and given a depomedrone injection. I have just started MTX (2nd dose due tonight) and am due to see my consultant next Thursday the day I will take my 3rd dose. The steroid injection really helped but I think it is wearing off now and my consultant said I may need one or two more whilst the MTX kicks in. Can you have them on the same day?
