Hello, I take .6 ml methotrexate weekly plus plaquenil and sulfasalazine. I've been completely knocked out with a head/chest cold for the past three days. Now my fever is down; can I go back to work tomorrow or will I just did myself in deeper? Any advice would be appreciated.

I agree with the previous comment, in that you should probably wait it out until you've fully recovered from the fever and/or whatever cold symptoms you might still have. At this point your immune system has to take time to build itself back up again through getting plenty of rest, proper nutrition, and not stressing out about anything.

Methotrexate on the other hand, is known for causing very serious side effects (including fever, chest pain, and trouble breathing). So if you believe this to be a side effect of the medication, it may be best to talk with your doctor about trying other treatment options with less risk involved.
