Thanks for your question.

Taking amoxicillin with methotrexate can increase the effects and blood levels of methotrexate.

Therefore you may need to reduce the dose of methotrexate.You need to discuss this possible issue with your doctor.

This is my initial answer.Please reply if you need any clarification.
