hi, i was wondering i already am taking a diet multivitamin w/ 400mcg/125%DV and i wanted to add another dosage of just folic acid (400 mcg/100%DV) to increase my chances of getting pregnant and to make sure my baby has no spinal and nervous system deformities,... is it too much??? one bottle said to not take more than 1000mcg/day and that only adds to 800, so it should be fine right?

you could take the whole bottle and it wouldn't do anything it will proberly make you want to go to the toilet alot more but it won't do anything to your baby so don't worry and if you don't believe me then ask your midwife and she will tell you the same thing all the best love ray xxx

nm- Folic acid has no known toxic level. Some of the other vitamins in your multivitamin, may have DO NOT take the whole bottle. It is recommended that women consume no more than 1,000 micrograms of synthetic folic acid a day. Jodie- No.
