I'm 26 and was recently diagnosed with PA. I have had some problems on and off for years, mainly with my knees. I was recently put on methotrexate and had my dosage increased to four pills and will now probably be put on Enbrel. My doc is pretty unclear about alcohol and i keep getting different takes on it everywhere. Some say NO alcohol others say 2-3 glasses per week. Does anyone have a doctor who allows them to drink while on methotrexate as long as liver enzyme tests are normal or do the majority think it's a bad idea? I would truly appreciate some opinions. I have tried to completely cut out my wine, but i love it, and it has been so difficult!! I am trying to cut out wheat and red meat etc., but wine is just one area that is causing me some big problems!
thanks so much for any opinions on this!!
