What To Think About
Methotrexate can cause birth defects. Do not use this drug if you are pregnant or wish to become pregnant or father a child while you are taking it.
Many antibiotics can increase the level of methotrexate in your blood. Make sure your doctor knows that you are taking methotrexate if you need to take an antibiotic for another problem.
You will have your blood drawn often while you are taking methotrexate.
Do not drink alcoholic beverages, including beer and wine, while you are being treated with methotrexate.
