Don't Let New Methotrexate Dosage Forms Lead to Errors
There will be more chances for methotrexate errors...due to more use of SUBCUTANEOUS methotrexate and a new ORAL solution, Xatmep (ZAT-mep).
Methotrexate mishaps can cause liver damage, immunosuppression, or death. Ensure your patients on methotrexate stay safe.
Watch for Rxs that don't list a dosage form. Methotrexate comes in oral tabs, single- and multidose vials of injectable solution, prefilled auto-injectors (Otrexup, Rasuvo), and Xatmep 2.5 mg/mL oral solution.
