I am so angry because of something I found out lately. I realized there is one medicine called Methotrexate that is used for chemo, which can bring even death as side effect. I wonder why any doctor prescribes this kind of a drug if this is possible. I want to hear if that is true, Methotrexate could be dangerous medicine for real. If that is true, can you explain to me how it works, because I am despaired to know?
