I recently started taking 10 mg of methotrexate weekly for RA. I take it on Saturday mornings so that if I am tired the next day is Sunday and I can rest. For the last 3 weeks I noticed that I am getting a headache Sunday night that lasts throughout Monday. Could this be a side effect of the medication? or simply a coincidence?
I'm having the same problem. I have been taking MTX for almost 3 years and the headaches are getting worse. I take MTX on Friday night and by Saturday evening or Sunday morning I'm having bad headaches that make me sick to my stomach, like a migraine. Was just wondering if anyone else was having this reaction or if headache was from something else.
