Amount of folic acid

I’m currently taking 1mg of folic acid from Healthway. But my doctor told me to get the 5mg folic acid of any brand cos I’m thalassemic. However, I’ve read articles that too much folic acid can cause autism and asthma. Should I get 5mg as told my gynae? Shouldn’t I be taking iron pills if I’m thalassemic?
