I feel sick the day I take it and 2-3 days after, I have no energy, I still have swelling in fingers, feet and wrist, sores I never had before, and I have a sore throat, like it is swollen. I'm showing little improvement and will be changing meds.

Comment:
My grandmother is on this medication and is had pleural effusions. They are actually putting a tube in her chest so that it can be drained at home. There is a lot online linking methotrexate with pleural effusions but her Dr didn't want to even discuse this as a cause. Has anyone else had pleural effusions while on methotrexate?
