Were you looking for information about Methotrexate? Methotrixate is a common misspelling of methotrexate.
A drug with many uses, methotrexate (Rheumatrex®, Trexall®) is licensed to treat severe psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other serious medical conditions. The medicine is quite strong -- typically, its use is recommended only when other, less toxic treatments have been tried first.
Methotrexate comes in the form of a tablet or an injection. The tablet form is taken by mouth, and the injectable form can be injected into a muscle, artery, vein, or the space around the spinal cord -- or injected just under the skin. Because it is such a powerful medicine, significant (and sometimes serious) side effects are possible, such as low white blood cell counts.
