Trexall Medication Information

TrexallTM (methotrexate) is a prescription medicine approved to treat the following conditions:
 
The medication comes in tablet form and is taken by mouth, often just once a week. Because Trexall comes in higher strengths (5 mg, 7.5 mg, 10 mg, and 15 mg) compared to other methotrexate tablets (2.5 mg), it is more useful for people who take large doses at a single time.
 
Before starting treatment, review the safety information for Trexall with your healthcare provider. This medication can cause serious side effects, so it's important to make sure other, less toxic treatments have already been tried, if appropriate. Your healthcare provider will need to monitor you carefully, with frequent blood tests to check your kidney function, liver function, and blood cell counts. Chest x-rays may also be recommended to check for side effects that involve the lungs.
