Ideas to treat methotrexate mouth sores?

  • By Lynthridge

    I’ve just increased methotrexate from the starter dose, and am developing lots of mouth sores. Has anybody had any real success with any type of treatment for them? Listerine worked for a minute but not anymore.

    Hi Lynthridge!
    Sorry you are dealing with mouth sores. Those can be so painful. We have a piece written up about them that might be of some help:

    If you haven’t already, you might consider talking to your doctor. They may be able to prescribe you something for it.
    Good luck!
