I also had night sweats after starting methotrexate. I am also manapausal so it is hard to say what causes them. I know if I stay away from alcohol, sugars and eat fruits and vegys and drink lots of water, they subside. I have been on it for 6 years. You learn how your body works after awhile. At least until something new pops up.

Hi Anonymous, night sweats could be an indication of an infection, as Methotyrexate is an immuno-suppressant. If you develop the symptoms of an infection, eg araised temperature, you should see a doctor as soon as possible, preferably the doctor who prescribed the Methotrexate, with any doctor you need to inform them that you are on Methotrexate, in case you need an appropriate antibiotic, as not all antibiotics can be taken along with Methotrexate. Hope your symptoms resolve soon. best wishes bacterial

I have had a few sweats, however I am 41,sweat easily and live in the south. My dermatologist has started me on mtx and tonight I start round 2. 4 pills a week. I have had some stomach pain,mild, nausea, a few headaches(which I have had prior to mtx) and some food and drink changes, where they taste metallic. I have psoriatic arthritis and one good thing is my elbow pain, and the hot feeling at the elbow have ceased. Thank God. I would contact your doc to be sure and on the safe side, mine has said to call for any questions. Good luck.
