Drug interactions between methotrexate and omeprazole
Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: methotrexate and omeprazole
Talk to your doctor before using methotrexate together with omeprazole. Using these medications together can increase the blood levels and side effects of methotrexate. Your doctor or pharmacist may be able to offer suggestions on safer alternatives if you require treatment for stomach acid or ulcer while you are being treated with methotrexate. However, if your doctor does prescribe these medications together, you may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely use both medications. 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.
