I took my first methatrexate injection Monday night and was left with dark blue bruising is this normal ?
I have been taking 7.5 mg of Methotrextae for two weeks and today I will increase to 15mg. I am feeling pretty anxious about possible side effects and am hoping others will share their best tips for Methotrexate day. I am planning to split the dose and take 1/2 around 3 or 4 PM and the other half at bedtime.

I take methotrexate (orally) on Friday nights. From Saturday to Wednesday, the pain is a lot less. I can also go down to 15mg of prednisone.

Is it possible that the methotrexate is wearing off?
I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with bleaching your hair while on methotrexate?
