What Is Otrexup?
Otrexup (methotrexate) is a chemotherapy drug that is prescribed for people with breast cancer, leukemia, lung cancer, lymphoma, and osteosarcoma. It also is prescribed for the treatment of certain autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease.
Otrexup comes in varying strengths in pre-filled syringes for weekly subcutaneous self-injection.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Otrexup offers hope to many cancer patients—something which is needed not only by patients but by their loved ones as well. But hope can be a fragile thing, especially when it hinges on the ability to maintain an uninterrupted supply of a costly medication that must be taken for an extended period of time. That can be difficult or even impossible for many who do not have prescription coverage. Fortunately, prescription assistance is available, though many who need it aren’t aware that it exists.
Simplefill aims to make a difference by raising public awareness about prescription assistance. We also bridge the gap between those who need help paying for essential medications and the programs and organizations that offer prescription assistance.
How Does Otrexup Work?
Otrexup is very similar in structure to folic acid, so it inhibits many of the enzymes that use folates. Because of this property, Otrexup interferes with DNA synthesis, and cellular repair and replication, especially in rapidly proliferating cancer cells. However, the exact way in which Otrexup works against autoimmune diseases is not yet understood.
