Is it safe to take tylenol 3 after methotrexate injections?

I am in a lot of pain and regular Tylenol is not working. I have Tylenol 3 from a previous procedure and was wondering if it is safe to take it after receiving the methotrexate treatment. The last shot was given to me last Tuesday afternoon. I would wait until tomorrow to call the doctor, but I am in a lot of pain.

  • looovemybabies is right. Call a pharmacy. Doctors (normally) don't know what meds can mix. I have noticed a lot of doctors conferring with a text book before answering my questions. Call any pharmacy and talk to the pharmacist on duty. They can answer your question without batting an eyelash.

  • Methotrexate is a chemotherapy shot that is used to terminate an ectopic pregnancy. Thank you all for your responses.

  • I found a website that you can enter the drug names and it will tell you if there are any interactions. Since it did not show any, I went ahead and took it. I was in so much pain! When I met with the nurse yesterday, she gave me another prescription for the same thing. I am feeling a lot better today.
