Leucovorin Calcium Information:

Leucovorin Calcium (Calcium Folinate) is an RX medication used to reduce the side effects of medications that block the effects of folic acid in the body, such as methotrexate, pyrimethamine, and trimethoprim. This medication works as an antidote to the harmful effects of methotrexate that is given in high doses. Leucovorin is also used to treat colorectal cancer in combination with other chemotherapy drugs, and can be used to treat anemia caused by folate deficiency. Leucovorin is a form of folic acid that works by blocking medications used to reduce folic acid from reaching binding sites. By blocking these other medications, Leucovorin restores folic acid that is required for proper DNA function. Leucovorin also reduces the risk of hematologic toxicity. Take this medication as directed. Before taking Leucovorin, tell your doctor if you have liver or kidney disease, breathing problems, or if you have anemia. Tell your doctor about any medications you are currently taking in order to reduce the risk of interactions. If you experience any serious side effects or signs of an allergic reaction, seek emergency medical attention.
