Question Prenatal and Folic Acid, with or without food

I've been taking a prenatal vitamin and 400mcg of folic acid, when I wake up without food.

Am I supposed to take those with food or without food? Also, is it okay to take them together or should I take the prenatal when I get up and the folic acid at night?

I want to make sure I get the right absorption on these. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

I always take my prenatals with food or milk. The only reason is because it says to on the bottle and when I didn't it made me feel really sick.
