High Hemoglobin Levels

High Hemoglobin Levels

Hello, can you tell me if injectable methotrexate can cause high hemoglobin levels? Thanks.


Hi there, Kendra --

I know this is an old question, but I did want someone from our staff to answer you! I hope you've long since discovered the answer to your question. I'm only a layperson, but I did some looking around on the Internet and I don't really see much about high hemoglobin and methotrexate use. There's a great deal on LOW hemoglobin levels and its use, so it obviously does have some effect on hemoglobin, so I suppose it's theoretically possible it could cause high levels, as well. I'm only a layperson though, and only a doctor or pharmacist can really answer the question accurately.

If you did find out what was causing the symptoms and got treatment for it, perhaps you'd consider coming back and telling us how things turned out for you? Your experience might be invaluable to someone else suffering from the symptoms.

Here are some links that might be helpful for you in any case. Best of luck to you!
