Metoject Subcutaneous How to Take

Metoject Subcutaneous (Methotrexate) is used to treat certain types of cancer such as Leukemia, Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Breast Cancer, head and neck cancer, stomach cancer, bladder cancer, bone cancer, and choriocarcinoma (a type of Uterine Cancer). It is also used to treat Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, and psoriasis (a chronic skin disorder that produces patchy scales) when other treatments have not provided a satisfactory result.

When used to treat cancer, Metoject Subcutaneous (Methotrexate) works by blocking an enzyme process in cancer cells so they cannot grow. Used for this purpose, Metoject Subcutaneous (Methotrexate) is known as an anti-metabolite.

For rheumatoid arthritis, it works by reducing inflammation and by suppressing the immune system. For psoriasis, Metoject Subcutaneous (Methotrexate) works by attacking the rapidly dividing cells that are involved in causing psoriasis. Under these circumstances, Metoject Subcutaneous (Methotrexate) is known as a disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD).

Metoject Subcutaneous (Methotrexate) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Metoject Subcutaneous (Methotrexate) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Metoject Subcutaneous (Methotrexate) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Metoject Subcutaneous (Methotrexate) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Metoject Subcutaneous (Methotrexate), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Metoject Subcutaneous (Methotrexate) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Metoject Subcutaneous (Methotrexate) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Metoject Subcutaneous (Methotrexate) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

When this happens, you may experience nausea, shortness of breath, cloudy urine, or joint pain. This is called tumour lysis syndrome. Your doctor may prescribe medications to help your body get rid of the waste products.
