My coworker forgot that I started methotrexate last night and put baileys in my coffee. I feel bad dumping it out so I just want to know if the odd drink of coffee and baileys is really hazardous or if I should be extremely adamant about not drinking any alcohol at all.
Hi there. I have been on methotrexate, as well as TNF-a blockers(Humira, Remicade, etc.), for many years. My rhuematologist told me that a glass of wine, once a week is probably not going to do me any harm. (What I have noticed is that when my liver enzymes are up in my blood work it's been when I've not had any wine for weeks. ??) If I were you, to be safe, I'd discuss it with healthcare provider, look at the research, and make an informed decision, knowing all of the risks. What has worked, or not, been safe, or not, for me may, or may not, be safe, or work for you. I wish you good health and smooth sailing.
Take care and be well! Lady of Howard
