I have been taking methotrexate for 6 weeks now, 6 tablets on the same day of the week and then the folic acid on the other 5 days. I am a bit baffled as to the dose of the folic acid though. My rheumatologist has prescribed the dose as 5mg each day and 15mg methotrexate a week. I am not seeing the rheumatologist nurse till next week, at which point I will be talking through a lot of things, but was wondering if 5mg every day is a bit high? As I have googled RD and it mentions a 5mg dose for the week not every day?
The methotrexate doesn't seem to be doing much good so may consider coming off it anyway as I don't think it's worth all the side effects it causes if it's not helping me but was wondering if anyone could please advise what dose of folic acid you take. Many thanks.
