I take prescript
ion folic acid, 1 mg per day, per Doc's orders. I asked the pharmacist about
getting it over the counter instead of prescript
ion. He said I would have to take 2 1/2 of the 400 mcg to equal the 1 mg (prescrip). He ended up telling me it's cheaper to get the Prescrip folic acid and pay for it without going through my insurance. My co pay was $10.00 for a month supply (30) and he was able to give me 65 for $10.99. Worth checking out if you are going to get a prescript
ion for Folic Acid filled. I'm curious to see how much folic acid your Doc prescribes, if he does, which if he knows his stuff, he will give you a scrip for it.
I take my folic acid in the morning with my Sulfasalazine and supplements, wasn't told not to. Kasey, are you feeling better from the meds? Hope so.
