I was told that the 1mg and 5mg tablets were for everyone, the higher doses are saved for the Cancer patients.
I suppose it also prevents the possible mix up of taking 6 x 30 mg tabs by mistake
I take Methotrexate 10mg per week. I am prescribed 2.5 mg tabs, so I have to take 4. There is a 10mg tab available but they don't prescribe it to patients like me because of the potential to confuse the number of tabs taken. It doesn't help that both strengths are a similar colour.
