Its a 1mg tab for folic acid and i forget what my calcium/vitamin D tab is, they are both prescribed. Yeah my GI put me on those for using prednisone on and off for awhile and ordered a bone density scan. Ya if your on your eighth treatment of prednisone it is odd your GI never gave you some calcium/V-D and folic acid. The scan is a good idea too.
