injecting when you have a cold

I am on 20mg of subcut methotrexate once a week. I am usually ok the next day as long as I take folic acid. This week I had a slight cold and did not feel well the day after my injection.I felt sick and tired and had to sleep. I was tempted to inject 15 mg as I thought my immune system is fighting the cold. Would this have been sensible to do?

Hope you're feeling a bit better now, so not even having to question it this week. But anyway I don't really bother to adjust or stop MTX if I've only got a cold. I only start to consider it if I have a high temperature. But everyone's a bit different so always best to call your rheumy nurse to check what they think best for you.
