Hello. I've just done something stupid and it's not surprising as my Methotrexate and Folic Acid tablets have both been dispensed in identical little brown bottles. So Friday night is Methotrexate night and I tipped out 6 tablets to take 15mgs MTX, swallowed 3 of them, then something made me look at the bottle - I'd taken 3 folic acid tablets instead! I know that MTX and Folic acid shouldn't be taken the same day, and as I've just had a triple dose of FA I've decided to skip my MTX this week. Has anyone else taken too much folic acid and could it be harmful? I'm going to put different stickers on the bottles so it never happens again. Angela.
