Folic Acid Information:

What is folic acid?

Folic acid is a B-complex organic compound that is necessary for daily bodily functions, and can be found in various foods (e.g., oranges, lentils, liver) as well as created synthetically. It's important to the manufacturing of red blood cells, the synthesis of RNA and DNA, and to liver and cardiovascular health. Its importance to blood cell production makes it imperative to women before conceiving and in the first trimester of pregnancy. Its importance in DNA and RNA can reduce the risk of cancerous mutations, especially in the stomach. Folic acid may reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. While folic acid pills can assist with treating certain kinds of anemia or B-vitamin deficiencies, it will not cure anything that is not a direct result of folic acid deficiency.

How do I take folic acid?

Generally, you'll take 1 pill by mouth with a full glass (8 oz) of water daily. However, your doctor may adjust your dose, especially for pediatric doses. Also, if your folic acid is a part of a B-complex or other supplement, follow the bottle's instructions.

Before taking folic acid, tell your doctor if:

  • You are currently sick or have an infection of any kind.
  • You think you have anemia, but it has not been formally diagnosed.
  • You have pernicious or hemolytic anemia.
  • You are an alcoholic or have a history of alcoholism.
  • You have or have a history of kidney disease, or you are on dialysis.
  • You have had an allergic reaction to medicines or supplements containing folic acid, or have had allergic reactions to Vitamin B supplements.
  • You are currently taking any seizure medications or anticonvulsants.
  • You are currently taking or have recently taken barbiturate medications.
  • You are taking any prescription or non-prescription medications, drugs, vitamins, or supplements, especially multi-vitamins, B vitamins, nitrofurantoin, methotrexate, phenytoin, or pyrimethamine.
  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding, or plan to become pregnant or breastfeed.

What are the possible side effects of taking folic acid?

Common side effects include: feeling irritable or agitated, sleeplessness, depression, a bitter or otherwise unpleasant taste in your mouth, loss of appetite, bloating or gas, nausea.

However, an allergic reaction requiring immediate medical attention is possible. Symptoms include: difficulty breathing, swelling in your tongue or throat, swelling of your face or lips, hives or itching.

What if I forget to take a dose of folic acid?

You may take your missed dose as soon as you remember it, unless it is almost time for your next dose. If that's the case, skip the missed dose. Always maintain your normal folic acid drug schedule, and do not take extra medication or a double dose to make up for missed doses.

How do I store folic acid?

Store at room temperature, away from excess light, heat, or moisture.

What happens if I overdose on folic acid?

You should seek medical assistance or call your local poison control center if you think you may have overdosed. Symptoms may include: confusion, trouble concentrating, feeling tired, weakness or numbness, tongue or mouth pain.


While folic acid itself does not require a special diet, your doctor may tell you to change your diet to improve your treatment results. Do not take more or less folic acid than prescribed by your doctor, or take it for longer than instructed.

Your doctor will likely want to test your blood to check your body's response and tolerance, so keep all appointments with your doctor or lab.

You will likely feel better quickly when taking folic acid to treat a folic acid deficiency or related anemia. However, do not stop taking your medication until instructed to do so by your doctor.

Brand Names

Folic acid is a generic B-vitamin, although it may be referred to as FA-8 or Folacin 800. As a generic, a folic acid retail price is already relatively affordable. However, you can still cut 58% from your local pharmacy's folic acid cost. Simply click Claim Discount to download or print your free coupon or discount card on folic acid medicine.
