Hi ladies, its me again. I was wondering does anyone know how much of this prenatal vitamins I should take? It says the 'serving size' is one pill and I do know that there is 800mg of folic acid in one pill. Is that enough?
my doctor told my to make sure i had 1mg(i think thats right) folic acid in my prenatal vitams. You can have your doctor prescribe some too. When i did that i found out it cost the same as it did over the counter. Now i am sure that will be based on the brand and your insurance coverage.
I would say if you're worried about folic acid you should find it somewhere else rather than taking extra prenatal vitamins. It seems like I read that some of the other vitamins that are generally included can be dangerous for the baby if you take too much. I may be wrong about that and anyone else can feel free to correct me, but from what I read I think its best to be careful taking more than recommended.
