Good Morning everyone.
I have been on Methotrexate now for 12 weeks along with Sulfazalazine and Folic Acid 6 days. I started on 15mg of Mtx but on the advice of my Rhumey Nurse, reduced the dose to 10mg as I was getting severe headaches, this reduction of the dose seems to be working as I have not had a headache for 2 weeks now and my joints so far have continued to be pain free with a lot less inflammation, I am glad to say as I was worried by reducing the dose I was setting myself up for lots of nasty flares. but fingers x this seems not to be the case so far.
I have however developed an annoying and troublesome cough, that has been with me since, 3/4 weeks into the Methotrexate treatment. It does not keep me awake at night but starts as soon as I wake up and is with me through the day, my husband thinks that's its actually getting worse as the weeks go by. So my question is has any of you guys experienced the same kind of cough and could this be a side effect of the methotrexate??
I am due to see my Nurse this week so it will be something I mention in my appointment with her.
