Applies to:A-G Profen (ibuprofen) and Folex PFS (methotrexate)
Ibuprofen may increase the blood levels and side effects of methotrexate. You may be more likely to experience this interaction if you have kidney disease or are receiving a high dose of methotrexate. The risk may be less if you are using methotrexate once a week to treat certain forms of arthritis. You may need a dose adjustment or more frequent monitoring by your doctor to safely use both medications. Contact your doctor immediately if you develop symptoms of potentially serious side effects of methotrexate such as mouth ulcers or sores; vomiting; diarrhea; rash; loss of appetite; joint pain or swelling; yellow discoloration of skin and eyes; dark urine; shortness of breath; dry cough; paleness; dizziness or fainting; unusual bruising or bleeding; seizures; infection; and flu-like symptoms (fever, chills, body aches, sore throat, muscle weakness). It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
