Q.

RA since April 2018

Hi I am a 43 years female diagnosed with RA in April this year, on methotreaxate 20 mg and plasmoquine. My mtx dose is every friday evening, I had to miss the dose this week as meds were not received in time, please advise what is the window between doses, if missed on the day of dosing can I take on a Saturday or Sunday and how many days should be between doses?

Thanks for very good question.

You can take it on the Saturday or Sunday, but then your cycle must change to every week on Saturday (or Sunday) thereafter.
I hope you are taking your Folic acid as well and the dose of plasmaquine is usually 5 days per week.
