Folic acid Q &A – why take it with methotrexate?

We have just published a short Q&A factsheet about folic acid and methotrexate because this is something that we often get asked about. This is the first in what we plan to be a series of short Q&A factsheets.

There is a link to the folic acid factsheet below. It can also be found in the factsheet section of our website.


Updated leaflet about BUS January 2018

Birdshot Uveitis Society is pleased to publish an updated version of our leaflet about BUS and birdshot uveitis.  It includes some basic information about the eye condition, the society and a simple Gift Aid form if you wish to donate to the charity.

If you want copies of the leaflet, you can print them off yourself to give to friends, family and colleagues so that they can better understand your diagnosis and  know where to go to find out more about the condition.  The leaflet fits on two sides of A4.
