Folbic And Pregnancy

Michelle Says:


I am taking folbic for high homocysteine levels and am considering becoming pregnant. Is there any research on the effects of taking such high doses of folic acid while pregnant? My pharmacist informed me that Folbic contains about 6.5-7 times the dose of folic acid that is usually contained in a typical prenatal vitamin. Would there be any harm in just using a regular prenatal vitamin and putting the Folbic on hold until after the pregnancy?

I took Foltx while pregnant and my pregnancy went fine. You have to take the higher dosages because your body is not able to absorb folic acid from food, so where a normal person can get folic acid from food and prenatal vitamins you can not. Also, high dosages of folic acid can deplete your B vitamins so you need the combination to replace what is lost. I did not have to have the blood thinner injections while pregnant because my homocysteine leves were normal. Yours need to be tested because if they are elevated you would need the blood thinner also. I saw a specialist and my regular OB/GYN and had no complications. I have two healthy girls age 8 and 1.

this site is not medical professionals, so your best option is discuss this with your doctor. I am unable to discover exactly how much is in this, normally pregnant women are given around 2 times the RDA to help prevent birth defects.

Have you discussed this with your doctor at all?
