I took mtx with remicade, but I am not too much help considering I don't want children, nor do I have psoriatic arthritis. I can tell you, mtx made me feel pretty lousy, but I felt lousy regardless from the UC itself, and all the other drugs. Soon after I ended up with septic shock and needed a long hospitalization. I personally don't know how I would feel about
taking something like mtx if pregnancy was something I was considering anytime soon. I did a little research though and it said that people have no increased risk of birth defects if they were off mtx before getting pregnant, so that is positive.
