Hi, Have been taking Maralyn Glenville vitamins twice a day but these are due to run out this week, have also got Pregnacare from Boots but have heard these are not as good as the Marlalyn's. Can someone tell me what the correct dose of Folic Acid is that I am supposed to take each day? I don't know if the Pregnacare give me enough.
Thanks

Hi Lolly

My doc recommended Pregnacare and there is 400g of Folic Acid so should be OK, but its personal preference I suppose

Is it me, or does folic acid give you constipation?!!  (sorry TMI!) ;D

Hi

I took Sanatogen Pronatal, but any of the multivitamins specifically designed to take before & during pregnancy and whilst breast feeding all contain the necessary amount of folic acid.  Alternatively you can just get plain folic acid supplements which also contain the right amount. 

Hope this helps.

Love
