Hi I'm 19, I've been on methotrexate for 3 months now. Do I have to completely avoid alcohol or would drinking one night really be a bad choice.

Also, does anyone else have problems with skin being flushed and feeling really hot? Or really bad headaches daily. Thanks

      Thanks for the reply, yeah the flushed skin is getting really bad for me that it looks blotchy sometimes. Wasn't sure if this is normal. I get headaches daily and they don't go away even with Tylenol or anything. Wasn't sure if this is related

      No, I told my doctor about the headaches and he wasn't sure what was going on. Is this in Canada?
