Should folbee tab brec be substituted for virt-vite?

My pharmacy substituted "folbee tab brec" for "virt-vite" 2.5-25-1 mg. Are they the same? If not, what is the difference? ## Hello RLA, Both of these are considered to be vitamins, focusing primarily on B vitamins. The problem with telling you the difference between the two is that there are a lot of variations of both of these vitamins and so giving an exact difference would be difficult. Some versions of the folbee have more vitamin B than other versions and the same can be said for virt-vite. For all intents and purposes though if the doctor feels that the folbee tab brec is enough of a vitamin boost then I see no problem with them substituting it for the virt-vite. I hope this helps.

Also, based on my research, the version of B-12 that is used in the Folbee supplement is Cyanocobalamin, wh...
