What is Folic Acid Tablet 5 mg?

Folic Acid Tablet 5 mg is used in the treatment of Folic acid deficiency. It's a B-complex vitamin that the body needs to make red blood cells. Certain kinds of anaemia are caused by a lack of this vitamin (and low red blood cell count).

It is Also Effective for,

  • When Homocysteine levels in the blood are high (hyperhomocysteinemia). Heart problems and stroke have been linked to this illness. In those with normal or high homocysteine levels, as well as those with kidney failure, taking folic acid by mouth decreases homocysteine levels.
  • Methotrexate toxicity is a side effect of the medication. Oral folic acid appears to improve nausea and vomiting associated with methotrexate treatment.
  • Brain and spine abnormalities can be present at birth (neural tube birth defects). Taking 600-800 mcg of folic acid by mouth every day during pregnancy lowers the chance of several birth abnormalities. Folic acid can be obtained from food or supplementation. High-risk individuals should take 4000-5000 mcg each day.

How to Use

  • Folic acid is available in tablet form. It is generally taken once each day. Follow the advice on your medicine label properly, and if there is anything you don't understand, ask your doctor to describe it to you. Folic Acid Tablet 5 mg should be taken exactly as advised.
  • If you're getting it to address a deficiency, you'll likely notice an improvement within 24 hours. However, should not stop getting this medicine unless your doctor instructs you to.

Precaution - Folic Acid Tablet 5 mg

  • If you are sensitive to folic acid or any other related medicines, talk to your doctor.
  • Inform your doctor about all of your prescription and OTC medications, especially phenytoin and vitamins.
  • To improve your folic acid intake, your doctor may advise you to consume more dried yeast foods, fruit, and fresh leafy green vegetables.

Benefit of Folic Acid

Anaemia is a disorder in which your body's red blood cells are insufficient to transport oxygen throughout your body. If you don't get sufficient folic acid from your diet (due to poor nutrition or poor folic acid absorption), your body will create fewer red blood cells, which can lead to anaemia. Folic Acid Tablet is a folic acid supplement. It is used in the treatment or prevention of low folic acid levels in the body. Folic Acid is required for the development of red blood cells. Folic Acid Tablet 5 mg can increase your red blood cell count and decrease anaemia symptoms like fatigue and weakness. Follow your doctor's instructions for dosage and duration.

Side Effects of Folic Acid Tablet

  • Folic acid in quantities of no over than 1 mg per day is probably safe for most persons. Doses greater than 1 mg per day may be dangerous. Stomach trouble, nausea, diarrhoea, irritability, confusion, behaviour changes, skin responses, seizures, and other adverse effects are possible with these doses.
  • L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate, a different type of folic acid, is also available in supplements.
  • There is considerable concern that getting too much folic acid over an extended period of time could result in major negative effects. According to certain studies, consuming it in dosages of 0.8-1.2 mg daily may raise the risk of cancer or heart attack in persons who already have cardiac problems.

Tips for using Folic Acid

  • It is used to treat folic acid deficiencies.
  • It's also used before and during pregnancy to lower the risk of neural tube abnormalities, which form the baby's spinal cord.
  • If you have a previous history of seizures, tell your doctor because you may require a greater dose of seizure medication than usual.
