Were you looking for information about Methotrexate? Methatrexate is a common misspelling of methotrexate.
If you have severe psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, or cancer, your healthcare provider may recommend a drug called methotrexate (Rheumatrex®, Trexall®). This powerful medicine comes in the form of a tablet or an injection, and works by inhibiting a cell's ability to repair and replicate (copy) itself.
Because the drug kills both cancer cells and healthy cells, side effects can be significant. In clinical studies, the most common problems included high liver enzymes, low white blood cell counts, and excessive fatigue. Prior to starting treatment, tell your healthcare provider if you are taking any other medications or have any other medical conditions. Also, let him or her know if you are pregnant, thinking of becoming pregnant, or breastfeeding.
