Should I be taking Folic acid with this RX? If, so how much?

A myRAteam Member said:

If you're on methotrexate, you should be taking a prescription form of folic acid that your rheumy should have given you. You don't mention what drugs you're on so it's hard to say. Now that I'm off methotrexate, I don't take it.

I was told years ago to take folic acid by my dr when he first started me on celebrex and sulfasalizine.
