Have been taking methotrexate for a number of years and the doctor has never suggested taking it in divided doses but that doesn't mean it is never done. It would be worth asking the rheumatologist about it. I had GI trouble taking the pills so the doctor switched me to the injection and have not had any other problems so far. Does it bother your mom's stomach? It is a once a week shot and some rheumatologist will give it in the office if need be.
With gentle thoughts,

I take 25mg once a week. My rheumatologist told me to take 15mg in the morning and 10mg at night...then 5mg Folic Acid 3 days later.
I haven't had any trouble with it.
