Hi guys, has anyone had a bad reaction when stopping methotrexate? I have felt pretty bad lately and haven't gone in to get my labs done in 2 months. I started to worry and thought I should stop the metho until I know my liver is OK. I know VERY bad decision. I stopped about 21/2 weeks ago and by this weekend I thought I was dying. Not to be overdramatic but I had been getting increasinly worse and by this weekend it was very bad. My heart rate was up, I couldn't catch my breath, I was hot and sweaty. It was aweful.
Months ago when I was on the pills(I am now on injectable) I had stopped and had a similiar reaction but truely didn't think it was from stopping the methotrexate. But with this reaction, I am now convinced. I almost went to the ER about 50 different times but did not want to go through that. So yesterday I gave myself a shot and by last night began to feel better and today I am definately better. Trust me I will never just stop again.
