Rheumatrex Drug Interactions

Problems can occur when certain drugs interact with Rheumatrex. For example, antibiotics can change the way Rheumatrex is absorbed by the body, either increasing or decreasing the potency of Rheumatrex. If you take phenytoin, your healthcare provider may need to lower your Rheumatrex dosage and monitor you closely.
