Methotrexate And Elevated Liver Enzymes

Methotrexate And Elevated Liver Enzymes

My liver enzymes were elevated. My MD took me off methotrexate for 3 weeks. My new lab results were even worse. Is this normal ?

I had the same thing with Humira. My liver test got worse in the month after I quit. In all, liver levels were elevated for about 4 mos after quitting Humira. I learned later that the Humira had damaged my liver, and my liver levels were elevated as my liver tried to repair itself.

Maybe it takes longer than that or maybe another medication is to blame for the problem. Are you taking a daily anti-inflammatory. Either over the counter or prescription?

I couldn't stay on methotrexate either because of the elevated liver enzymes. I am on Humira once a week plus prednisone right now

Not sure if that's normal. Ask your rheumy.
