I have been taking methotrexate followed 24 hours later by leucovorin calcium oral. Have not experienced side effects of methotrexate by using this combination.

I was taking MTX for RA oraly and my stomach could not take it-Leucovorine helped somewhat but I still had to start giving myself injections of the MTX and I still take the Leucovorin.

My urine smells like medicine. I don't see this as a side effect but it makes me wonder.
