Post a Reply Share
I found it in the US but it could be foreign. It's just a circular pink/peach-ish pill, scored in half on one side and no markings anywhere on it. It might just be a vitamin but I took it anyway. If you have an idea of what it might be please respond. {edited for privacy}

Is it safe to continue taking that tablet during my pregnancy? ## Hi. I'm 6 weeks pregnant. My Dr suggested that I take Folsafe-l (mecobalamin 1500mcg, l-methylfolate 1mg, pyridoxa-5 phosphate 0.5mg) and Susten sr 400. Are these medicines safe to take?
