Roy Says:

" Possible side effects can include anemia, neutropenia, increased risk of bruising, nausea and vomiting, dermatitis and diarrhea. A small percentage of patients develop hepatitis, and there is an increased risk of pulmonary fibrosis.

The higher doses of methotrexate often used in cancer chemotherapy can cause toxic effects to the rapidly-dividing cells of bone marrow and gastrointestinal mucosa. The resulting myelosuppression and mucositis are often prevented (termed Leucovorin rescue- as this is the folic acid based drug used)

Methotrexate is a highly teratogenic drug and categorized in Pregnancy Category X by the FDA. Women must not take the drug during pregnancy, if there is a risk of becoming pregnant, or if they are breastfeeding. Men who are trying to get their partner pregnant must also not take the drug. To engage in any of these activities (after discontinuing the drug), women must wait until the end of a full ovulation cycle and men must wait three months.

There is a risk of a severe adverse reaction if penicillin is prescribed alongside methotrexate. There have also been some reports of central nervous system reactions to methotrexate especially when given via the intrathecal route which include myelopathies and leucoencephalopathies.

There have been reports of exacerbation of depressive illness with methotrexate. "

Hi, i am a patient of severe RA for last 2yrs. I am undergoing treatment of Dr. Rajiva Gupta at Medanta Mediciti Gurgoan since last three months only and my condition has improved tremendously. Before that i tried ayurveda and many alternate treatments which was a waste of time. I take Folitrax 15mg once a week two days i feel uncomfortable but 3rd day i am fine. My suggession is dont think about the side effects too much get cured first try to live a life full of fun and laughter u will feel the difference. I could not walk and was in bed for 1 month u got to be mentally strong.
