    What is the alcohol limit for Methotrexate users ?

    October 12, 2009

    Or they should not take any alcohol with Methotrexate?? I have been taking Methotraxate for many years and sometimes I drink a glass of wine a week. Hope this does not affect liver so much...

    I was told anything in moderation is OK. A couple glasses of wine here and there should be Ok. Dailey may be a bad thing though.. :-) READ MORE

      i was told by the specialist i could have 2 to three standard drinks per week while taking 10 mg mtx without serious side effects , i am on weekly treatments , but beware of blood alcohol concentrations when driving as i tested positive over .05 after having 3 drinks over a 2.5 hr period 1 night .i took the meds at 7 pm and was tested at 10.30 pm , i was tested again 7 days later and had not had any alcohol , the result .014 , so it has to be the mtx reacting to the alcotest machine.

      I was told by my rheumathologist that i could have 4 pints of guinness a week. I do'nt know how accurate that is but i watched my blood tests at first and there were no adverse reactions. My liver reading was normal. It's more a question of sanity and going out to socialise and meet people. READ MORE

    I was told the same, but in the same note a small glass of red wine is o.k. now and then, but not nightly, because of the Resvertol benefit.  Had to give up my scotch, but I do fudge once a year and spend it on a good jigger.  Hey, for a birthday one has to have something!

    Your not supposed to drink because meth can cause liver damage, and drinking speeds that up.  But talk to your dr.,maybe a glass of wine every now and then is ok.

    Wow, I am SO bummed out...I LOVE to make drinks for me and my friends at camp--thats pretty much what our camping trips are centered around around. I want to "walk" but don't want to be a wall flower, so there has to be something else? I just picked up my Metho today and I'm not sure I even want to try it :(
