Folic acid mistake!

Fuzzywig Member Posts: 2
Good morning. I woke up very much on auto pilot today and took my folic acid first thing. Now realised it's methotrexate day! Do I take the methotrexate as usual tonight, or leave it until tomorrow, with no folic acid tomorrow, or take it as usual and skip tomorrow's folic acid? I should be most grateful for advice. I take 10 x 2.5mg methotrexate weekly and folic acid six days a week. Many thanks for your help.

    I am afraid I can't help you as it is OA I have but if you repost this on Living With Arthritis more people will see it. Good luck I'm sure someone will be able to advise you.............Marie

    Dear Fuzzywig,

    Thanks for your post to Helplines. I'm really grateful to other forum members sharing their knowledge here, as we have be cautious of going into the technicalities of your medication as we are not medically qualified. We'd always suggest you check these points with pharmacist/ rheumatology nurse/ GP to be on the safe side.

    I hope you've found a resolution to the situation, but you'd be most welcome to give us a ring if you'd like some support.

    Kind regards
