    What Are The Side Effects Of Stopping Methotrexate. I am also taking folic acid and Hydroxychloroquine. And I am out of all of them. it's not a good idea to stop methotrexate "cold turkey." I was on plaquenil for about 6 months. I told my rheumy that I really didnt feel like it was helping much, so he took me off it cold turkey last monday.
