Hi
Welcome to the health care magic and thanks for asking your query here

For Your Information Orofer XT also contains Folic acid so you don't need to take any extra pill of folic acid along with Orofer XT

in first trimester u was taking folic acid alone without any iron but
As u r now in mid of second trimester your dr has done the right job by prescribing orofer XT along with shelcal Because orofer XT contains iron along with folic acid which you will Need from now and onward till the delivery

So take the medicine as per prescribed and always consult openly with your dr for any doubt regarding medicine he prescribed

I hope it helps
Thanks again for the question
