mouth sores with RA

I have been on folic acid, methotrexate, and prednisone, since Oct. 09. I have had mouth sores on and off now for several weeks, is this due to the medications I might be on?

This could be a side effect of the methotrexate. You should really call your rheumy and talk to them. Even though you have been on metho for a while you can develop this type side effect at any time and your rheumy may want to take you off metho and try something else.
