Do you have to take Folic Acid daily in order to use Humira?  Can't take the oral Folic Acid as it makes me nauseous.  Appreciate your thoughts.

I am on Humira and Imuran and don't take Folic Acid. Have you been told you should take it if you are on Humira? MB

I am not on Humira or MTX or Imuran and I am supposed to be taking Folic Acid. I can't tell you about the need to have it with Humira, but you may need the Folic Acid regardless. Can you look into alternative delivery methods for the Folic Acid?

What are the alternative deliveries?? I was taking it orally and it has torn up my stomach.

I will look to see if there are any. I just thought it was something to consider. I'll let you know if I find something
