I have been taking folic acid 400 mcg for over a year now daily . Did t have any problems but when I got my folate checked and it was at 10 and gp would not prescribe 5 mg I decided to up my intake of the 400 mcg . Even taking an extra one of these caused me to have tummy upset and diarrhoea. Have also been feeling anxious and depressed . Self injecting and getting monthly at doctors . I take Vit D spray and ferrous fumerate no problem .
Folic acid or another b vitamin ? - Pernicious Anaemi...
Hi MandyPandy you say "when I got my folate checked and it was at 10" that sounds like it's OK to me - either stick with the 400μg or up your leafy green vegetables for natural Folate.
I'm not medically trained but have taken 1 – Folic Acid 400μg every day for more years than I can remember as this works with B12 to make red blood cells.
