Terms & Conditions of Program
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Rheumate is a prescription medical food prescribed to people who are taking methotrexate therapy to manage rheumatic conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. Methotrexate is a folate antagonist, and it works by starving diseased cells of folic acid so they cannot continue to replicate. People who take methotrexate must take folic acid supplementation, so the other cells of their body do not experience the toxic effects of methotrexate.
Rheumate is not a prescription drug but is classified as a medical food. It should only be used under the supervision of a physician or another healthcare professional.
The usual dosage is one to two capsules by mouth once or twice a day. Do not change the dosage without speaking to your doctor.
The dosage may change during the course of methotrexate therapy depending on if there are changes to the methotrexate dose.
Rheumate contains three different active ingredients:
The folate works by replenishing the lost folate when taking methotrexate. This type of folate works better for people with methyltetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) deficiency.
Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) is present in Rheumate because replenishing folate can hide the symptoms of certain types of anemia.
Turmeric (curcumin) is a known antioxidant that reduces the liver damage caused by methotrexate. It scavenges reactive oxygen species (ROS) and helps to reduce inflammation.
Tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are taking the following drugs before starting Rheumate:
Do not take this medical food if you have an allergy to any of the ingredients, including folic acid (vitamin B9), methylcobalamin (vitamin B12), or turmeric (curcumin).
