Methotrexate 25 Mg In Addition To Sulfasalazine & Hydroxychloroquine

Methotrexate 25 Mg In Addition To Sulfasalazine & Hydroxychloroquine

I have been taking sulfasalazine & hydroxychloroquine since Oct 2017. Now my rheumatologist has prescribed methotrexate 25 mg by injection in addition to the other 2 meds. That seems to me to be a high dose to be started on. Any opinions would be helpful.

I take Methotrexate. The vial is 2ml and there are 50mg/ml. Each ml contains 25mg and I take .8cc (so a little less than 25mg) weekly.

Hi Michele2, thank you for your answer. Do you take other meds too besides methotrexate? How have the side effects been? If you would rather not answer that is okay. I appreciate your input. 😊

While on Methotrexate, in the beginning I was on 10mg. From 10 mg my doctor before the Blood work came back(liver was elevated) my doctor was going to increase my monthly does to 15 mg. She took me off of Methotrexate because of my liver. Now I take Humira.
