When being treated for arthritis it is important to let your doctor know about all the supplements you take. A daily vitamin, cold medicine, and laxatives, so forth. Some may mix up the results from medications or tests, some do interfere with medications. Should you have a doubt, your pharmacist can check as well. I believe that the glucosamine has been shown ineffective although some people swear by it. That is because which type of inflammation you have makes a difference and probably your genetics.
Heart medications, alcohol and Caffeine are common substances that should not be with the methotrexate. No known interaction exists between the others. Let your doctor know. Liver damage is possible with alcohol.
