Rheumatrex Medication Information

Rheumatrex® (methotrexate) is a prescription drug licensed for several unrelated uses. It is approved to treat the following conditions:
 
The medication comes in the form of a tablet. For some types of cancer, Rheumatrex is given once a week; for other types, it is given cyclically, such as a five-day course of treatment with a week (or more) break between treatments.
 
Rheumatrex is a strong medication that should be avoided by people with certain medical conditions, such as chronic liver disease. It can also cause serious side effects, such as severe vomiting and liver damage. For these reasons, Rheumatrex is generally not the type of drug that is used as a first choice. It is typically recommended only when other, less toxic treatments have been tried first, if possible.
