Have been on Enbrel, Naproxen, famotidine and a half of a tablet of prednisone for about 7 weeks now. Have been getting hot flashes a couple of times a day. I was wondering if it is the prednisone causing this. I have been monitoring my blood pressure and it is fine. I see my rheumatologist in about a month. Has anyone else had this problem?: Should I be concerned?
I had hot flashes when I was on methotrexate. can't help you out with those meds, but anything is possible.
I had hot flashes during menopause with and without methotrexate and when inflammation was high. Sometimes when inflammation is high I have chills and hot flashes. I really think mtx makes them worse but does help in the long run. I have been mtx and biologics for a few years and it is better now.
I guess my point is that I am years away from menopause still, and the hot flashes disappeared after I stopped taking MTX.
