Anemia treatmemt: Other than possible constipation, caused by iron, the syrup (s) your physician (p) prescribed will give harmless. Ask your p what you folate, (folic acid) iron and B12 values are.

Loss of $: The contents of the pill you are taking are not clearly defined. In any case, you are probably not doing yourself any favor by taking an expensive food supplement.

I have a vitiligo and I am taking 1000mcg vitamin b12, 800mcg folic acid, 300mg a-lipoic acid and taking daily sunlight, does all these hav any side eff?

I have a vitiligo and I am taking 1000mcg vitamin b12, 800mcg folic acid, 300mg a-lipoic acid and taking daily sunlight, does all these hav any side eff?

All very safe: Vits. B12, Folic Acid and Alpha Lipoic Acid are all very safe without side effects. B12 and a-lipoic acid are in many foods. Folic acid is actually synthetic but we covert it folate, found in food. About half of people have trouble converting folic acid to folate so you might be better off taking the L-5-MTHF form of folate.
