I have the beginning signs of
Rheumatoid Arthritis and my doctor
has prescribed Methotrexate. I
have been on Coumadin for 13 yrs.
and I am concerned about the
interaction between Methotrexate
and Coumadin. Would it be a potentially dangerous combination?

I ran an interaction check for anything with those two drugs, there is a very good checker at, they even check out food, supplements, and beverages. There is nothing at all listed between these two meds, so you should be fine.

IT CAN INTERACT BIG TIME BY INCREASING INR LEVELS AND BLEEDING RISK! I have to take both. contact your Coumadin clinic or provider that monitors your WARFARIN. they will adjust dose and monitor you closely.This is directly from the doctors and pharmacists I talked to. The important part is to ensure you keep contact with your WARFARIN provider and methotrexate provider. if you don't have home inr monitoring ask your doctor. it's been a godsend for me!

Re: Verwon (# 1)

it does react just not directly. it should be listed. it can be taken together but as I replied above one must always stay in contact with their WARFARIN provider. only they. can tinker doses to keep your INR from going sky high causing. hemmorhage risk.
