I am 60 year old lady, suffering from RA since 7 years. Doctor has given me folitrax 5 mg once in a week and folic acid 5 mg everyday. I went to another doctor for second opinion, but he told me to stop folitrax as it is a medicine given for cancer. Is it true?
folitrax is a medicine that can be given for cancer as well, but the doses for cancer are very different .. don't worry
