I have been on methotrexate for almost a week now, my second dose will be tomorrow. Started off on a low dose of 10mg a week.
The day I took methotrexate I felt a little sicky, but okay, I was expecting that. The past few days I have been quite sore, which I am expecting to settle down sooner or later, and have been taking Naproxen (NSAID's) to help with the swelling.
I have also been taking Folic Acid every day that I don't take methotrexate, yesterday I forgot to take it, and today my lips and cheeks are so swollen. They're bleeding and my teeth hurt to touch them.
Has anyone else had this reaction? Is this a lack a folic Acid as I forgot to take a dose, or is it a side effect to the drug? Is it anything I have to worry about?
