It is very common for the pharmacy to give you a generic, cheaper version of the prescription unless you, or your doctor say it must be the name brand.

Arthur Says:

Folbic and Foltx had minor differences and substituting one for the other used to be no problem. Now the new reformulated Foltx has L-methylfolate instead of folic acid. L-Methylfolate is the active form of folate, and so your body needs to convert folate to L-methylfolate. Some people have genotypes for methylenetetrahydrofolate reductasepolymorphisms that decrease the ability to convert Folate to L-Methylfolate, For these individuals it would be prudent to take L-Methylfolate instead of folate.
