Worrying rise in accidental overdose of prescription drug methotrexate | smh.com.au

I’ve never understood why they make methotrexate and folic acid look nearly identical.

On vacation once, both bottles opened in my bag. I had to meticulously examine each yellow pill to sort them. Is this the little yellow pill (methotrexate) or the big yellow pill (folic acid)?

They should at least take the preventative measure of making these two very different drugs that are prescribed together different shapes and sizes.
