When I went to the pharmacy in my local grocery today to pick up my pentasa prescription (I got it through mail order previously) the pharmacist told me she was putting a call into my doctor because pentasa taken with methotrexate can increase levels of methotrexate. Then later I get a missed phone call from the gi office telling me that she had a call from the pharmacist and to give her a call about my pentasa medication, which I will do tomorrow. I've been taken the two together for almost 4 weeks. I would also think the rheumatologist would be aware of this (he is the one prescribing the methotrexate) as he is treating me for crohn's related arthritis.
Has anyone run into this problem?
