Has anyone experienced major dizziness and vertigo from the injectable methotrexate?

I'm not on the injections but I take methotrexate in tablet form. I do get a little dizzy sometimes but I don't think it's any more than I did prior to taking it. I'm hoping someone who's tried the injections will be able to stop by and share their experiences with you. I noticed there's a bit of discussion regarding the injections in this forum post: https://psoriatic-arthritis.com/topic/methotrexate-2/
Have you mentioned this to your doctor yet?

This medication had be cross-eye. I always felt dizzy as if I was on a boat. I even remember walking side ways. I was put on folic acid which helped some. I would be sick to my stomach and confused a lot. The side effects were to much for me that I had to stop taking it to do my job. I know this is not an option for everyone. Talk to your doctor about the side effects and see if there is something you can take with it.

I take MTX not its been about one month. time to time I get this dizziness in i have a feeling like fainting when I walk and sometimes when I drive. I explained this to my doc but he said there is no side effects in mtx much. I am thinking of changing my doc. or I have to stop taking mtx. I cannot work when I am on mtx . time to time it happens. Even i lost my driving confidence . When I drive last week my wife asked " are you OK" so she has seen my lack of confidance. I am really confused about what I should do next. either to change the doc or go for a nurologist

This is an older post now, but wanted to I add for others searching that I have also had this reaction. After week 3 and increasing to 15mg I have terrible vertigo and brain fogginess. I have a hard time thinking clearly or moving around too much. Driving wasn’t something I was comfortable with and working wasn’t possible. At better points I could function ok, but would still get intermittent waves of dizziness and more of a hangover feeling. Fatigue as well. Not fun.
