Methotrexate

print version share on facebook

Methotrexate is a type of drug known as a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD). These drugs have the effect of dampening down the underlying disease process and helping to prevent joint damage, rather than simply treating symptoms of pain and stiffness. Methotrexate works by reducing the activity of the immune system (the body’s own defence system), which may be overactive in some conditions.
