It would depend what they are as some anti-biotic dont mix with MTX. So i cnt really help hope someone answer who got more knowledge than me . Good luck.

I know at my drs computer flashes red if they go to give you drugs that dont mix so as long as dr knows about mtx id say it would be ok

Thanks for reply Mads I ask chemist today x x x

Hi Minxy,

just to add to what Mads said - when I was on MTX and had a lung infection I had to stop the MTX for a week while I took the course of antibiotics, then went back on MTX again.

Thank you fran xxxx

My two rheumies always tell me any antibiotics mtx no way. Check with your chemist and see what they say or ring a&e and ask their advice.xxx

My theory on this is if in doubt don't take it. It is good to hear from you as well.You seem to be in the wars as well aren't you,i hope you soon feel brighter.xxx

I was always told to stop Mtx at any sign of infection and before any surgery. Hope this helps
