So many of us are on this medicine I thought I'd share info from an article I read in an arthritis magazine
Apple, orange and grapefruit juice block methotrexate and some antibiotics: ciprro and levaquin
Milk and yogurt block 'cycline' named antibiotics, and cipro.
Wait 3-4 hours after consuming these to take your meds. Or ask your pharmicist.
