    What is Rheumatrex?

    Rheumatrex is used to treat psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis and certain types of cancer. It is often recommended when other products do not yield results. It can also manage rheumatoid arthritis in children. It is often used in severe conditions or as an aggressive treatment at the onset to prevent damage to the joint or nerves.


    Rheumatrex (Methotrexate) Information

    Rheumatrex dosage

    Rheumatrex is rarely used long term as it is a potent medication. Your dose and duration of treatment depends on your condition and history of treatment. Your dosing schedule will also vary based on what this is used to treat. It is important to take this as prescribed by your doctor otherwise it can cause severe side effects.

    The tablets are taken orally as recommended by your doctor. Pregnant or planning to become pregnant should not handle the tablets as the medicine can be absorbed by the skin and may harm an unborn baby.

    Drink lots of water during treatment. This will help to remove the drug from your system and prevent more severe side effects. For patients with psoriasis, the usual dose is one tablet a week for several months. Do not take extra doses as this will not hasten treatment. Toxicity have been reported when individuals that receive methotrexate use it in high dosages.

    How Rheumatrex works

    It is an antimetabolite that slows, or even stops, the growth of cancer cells and suppresses the immune system. This helps to manage symptoms.
