Methotrexate Lung

I was recently diagnosed with sero-negative RA. I've been on methotrexate for 3 months. For a month now I have had a dry cough that I can't shake. Should I be worried? Can this be related to the methotrexate? I was on antibiotic for a sinus infection and he cough did not get better. Anyone else have a cough of methotrexate? What exactly is "methotrexate lung"?
RA gal,
Janet

Hi Janet. I think your cough is something to tell your rheumy about. My rheumy asked me about this after starting me on mtx. I would call the dr and speak to the nurse about this. I don't know exactly what goes on in the lungs with mtx. I wouldn't blow it off though. There are many other meds to try, if mtx doesn't fit. Good luck.
