Picked up my prescription and the methotrexate looked totally different. Much bigger pills with no identifying marks at all, dispensed in a brown bottle (the ones with the child/ra proof lids). The booklet I was given when first prescribed mtx said it is dispensed in 2.5 mg and 10mg tablets so always be careful to check the correct dose has been given but this is difficult when there's no numbers or anything on the pills. Being paranoid I phoned the pharmacist and confirmed that they were indeed 2.5 mg tablets. Can different brands bring with them different side effects or be less/more effective? It makes my brain ache just thinking about it.
