5 weeks pregnant I am taking folvite (folic acid) 5 mg before and after i got pregnant. Is this dose too much ? If yes should I reduce? And will that harm my baby?

5 weeks pregnant I am taking folvite (folic acid) 5 mg before and after i got pregnant. Is this dose too much ? If yes should I reduce? And will that harm my baby?

There are definitely times when women should take higher doses of folic acid, such as history of neural tube defect, history of seizures, on anti-seizure medication, multiple gestation. I would speak with your doc to understand why such a high dose. Or, if you're worried, you can drop to 1mg a day. ...Read more

I went to dr she told me to stop ginette 35 & to have metformin 850,folvite (folic acid) & normoz .in scan on 12th day to chk ovula & called 16th day chk rupture??

Meds: 1: Stopping Ginette is OK and probably wise. 2: The other 3 meds are fine and should not cause trouble. 3: I am curious - did you doctor describe any of these items in a manner you could understand? 4: It is worthwhile to go online and look at all the information about these meds.
