Folitrax contains the active ingredient Methotrexate.

" 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. "

My wife aged 44 has been suffering from RA for the last 4 years . But seems like there is no improvement. She has been using Tab SAAZ DS , Tab DZC ,Tab ACEPROXYVON. .Now the doctor has added Tab FOLITRAX 7.5 MG Two tab once in a week and TAB FOLVITE once in a week.
We heard lot of side effects with FOLITRAX and hence scared to use it.
kindly advise for an alternative with no side effects.
Regards
