About Mext F 7.5MG Tablet 28’s

Mext F 7.5mg Tablet 28’s belongs to the class of ‘antimetabolite agent’ primarily used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Mext F 7.5mg Tablet 28’s is also used to treat leukemia (blood cancer), Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (cancer of lymphatic system), soft tissue and bone cancer and certain types of cancer/tumors breast, skin, head and neck, lung or uterus. Mext F 7.5mg Tablet 28’s reduces the immune system’s strength to treat conditions of autoimmune diseases. Arthritis is an autoimmune disease, which leads to joint pain and damage.

Mext F 7.5mg Tablet 28’s contains Methotrexate (immunosuppressant/antimetabolite) and Folic acid (vitamin). Methotrexate works by reducing the function of the cells that cause inflammation in the joint tissues. It is also an anticancer drug that prevents cancer cell’s growth and spread by blocking their access to folate (a form of vitamin B9). Folic acid is the synthetic form of folate. It prevents and treats low blood levels of folate (folate deficiency) caused due to Methotrexate during chemotherapy.

Your doctor will decide the dosage based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience common side-effects, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrheic, fatigue, dizziness, headache, loss of appetite, increase in liver enzymes, lowered resistance to infections, tingling sensation, stomach upset, stomach pain, leukopenia (decreased number of white blood cells) and soreness of mouth and lips. Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.
