Ok look, I know what the rule and Doctor's orders are about alcohol and Methotrexate are, but I need some answers and opinons.
It's Labor Day weekend and I haven't had a drop of alcohol since I started the drug on August 14th. I know that doesn't seem like very long, but before I started the drug I usually drank 3 to 4 times a week. I'm going to be painfully honest here, because I can't get the answers I want with out doing that. . . . I am on 12 mg 1 x a week. Just took a dose Tuesday. I am a 27 year old female who is 5'9" and weighs 195lbs. When I drink on the weekends at get togethers with friends, I tend to drink quite a bit. I stick to beer (Miller Lite for example), but I can drink anywhere from 10 to 15 beers by myself, depending on how long we are all hanging out and what we are doing.
Sorry there is so much detail here. I just want to go have a good time with my friends and boyfriend this weekend and I'm so sick of everyone telling me how bad they feel that I can't drink. I enjoy drinking. I enjoy being able to let loose. Most people would usually respond on here by telling me to have one or two. . . I know me and know that won't be an option.
So here are my questions for those who are on or have taken Methotrexate:
1) Have you drank and over indulged (even if it was just once) while on the meds? If so, were you ok? Did you have a bad hangover? Did you feel like you messed your liver up? Did your blood work come back bad?
2) Should I just suck it up and drink water or whatever like I've been doing for the past 2 1/2 weeks?
I can have a good time without drinking, but I don't want to this weekend!
Like I said, I've only been on the Metho since August 14th and supposedly, I'm only going to take 4 total doses, so this Tuesday is supposed to be my last. My Dermatologist just put me on it because my insurance requires that before they will approve a Biological.
Thank you in advanced to those who may be able to help me out here!
