"Methotrexate (rINN) (pronounced /mtrkset/), abbreviated MTX and formerly known as amethopterin, is an antimetabolite and antifolate drug used in treatment of cancer and autoimmune diseases. It acts by inhibiting the metabolism of folic acid. Methotrexate replaced the more powerful and toxic antifolate aminopterin, and the two should not be confused with each other."

I have psoriasis & diabetes. My blood sugar was in control with glycomet 500. But since a month or 2 when I took folitrax for a month as advised by my skin doctor, my bllod sugar has increased. I have tried to be more systematic with food and lifestyle habits. Even then my sugar level is high. Does folitrax have any role in it?

Dear Friends, My wife was suffering from RA and the doctor suggested methotrexate (Folitrax-20 MG / Week) this medicine reduced her immune system as a result of which (With in one year of treatment) she developed Severe Sepsis followed by ARDS as result of which I lost my loving wife in a just 3 days time ... hence ask your doctor before starting the medicine

Hai, My wife is suffering from Rheumatic Arthritis and joint pains for the past 2 years. From Nov 2011 onwards she was advised to take Deflazocort 6mg, Etodolac 400mg, Nurokind LC, Calten D (all these daily) along with Folic acid and Folitrax combined weekly once. Her SGPT was previously 20 - 22 and now it was increased to 47. Is it because of the folic acid or folitrax. can any one suggest what to do. Now she is feeling a little dousy, Heart shivering etc..
