 The above information has been copied and pasted from the FDA's Drug Shortage List (Updated 2/23/2012, per the site)
Due to increasing demands, because of limited availability from several manufacturers, there has been and increasing shortage of Methotrexate.
Hospira and Bedford Laboratories(aka Ben Venue) are working closely with the FDA to get production back on track.

I will continue to keep tabs on this . . . for all of our sakes.
