Methtrexate

Were you looking for information about Methotrexate? Methtrexate is a common misspelling of methotrexate.
 
Available in the form of a tablet or an injection, methotrexate (Rheumatrex®, Trexall®) is a drug used to treat serious conditions such as severe rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and certain types of cancer. It works by inhibiting a cell's ability to repair and replicate (copy) itself. Although the drug can damage both healthy and unhealthy cells in the body, it tends to target rapidly replicating cells, such as cancer cells and bone marrow cells.
 
Possible side effects of this prescription medicine include low white blood cell counts, infections, and high liver enzymes, among others. Methotrexate may not be suitable for everyone, so before starting treatment, let your healthcare provider know about all medications you take and any medical conditions you have. Also, tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant, thinking of becoming pregnant, or breastfeeding.
