In brief: FDA-shortage avoided
Recent fda release suggests that the shortage may be averted.
Also one of the companies that is still producing methotrexate, mylan is still making Methotrexate and is increasing its production. In rheuamtolgoy we use boith the pills and self injection. We need both of these tools for our patients and would be disappointed with any shortage of this medication or any other one.
