1200 Mcg Folic Acid
Is 1200 mcg of folic acid a day too much? I have righ risk HPV and an abnormal pap. Is this an okay dose for a short period of time to get rid of hpv
Totally safe!: Folic acid is considered quite safe, in fact doses up to 15, 000 mcg/day are given for certain conditions and see well-tolerated. High doses of folate (folic acid) can mask B12 deficiency so it is wise to take B12 too. High Folic Acid may reduce zinc absorption so you might take zinc too. 1/3 of people can't convert Folic Acid to the active l-5-mthf so taking that form may be esp. Beneficial. ...Read more

Hmmm...: There are hundreds or more conditions and diseases that can cause "feeling weakness" in one's body. So, why suspect low iron? A doctor might consider ordering some basic lab tests to check one's blood count, iron levels, chemistries, etc... That means, if this "feeling weakness" is worrisome or more than a few days in duration, a visit to the doctor is helpful. ...Read more
800 mcg: While the absolute minimum I would recommend is 400 mcg, many standard prenatal vitamins contain 800 mcg or even 1 mg. All of these doses are acceptable. The important thing is to start taking your folate (folic acid) when you contemplating conception. If you wait until you are 2-3 weeks after your period is missed to start a prenatal vitamin it may be to late to prevent a neural tube defect. ...Read more

Add one at a time and listen to your body's response. ...Read more
