Hi there,
I am Mysticdoc, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to help you with your concerns.

Methotrexate 10 mg additional dose in a week should not cause any problem usually.
The side effects include nausea, stomach upset,sore mouth, fever, fatigue, increased liver enzymes, respiratory tract infection, folic acid deficiency.
You should also discuss with your doctor.
However, this should not pose a serious problem.

Best wishes
