    question on folgard...

    I have been diagonised for MTHFR and asked to take folic acid 4mg. I am confused if I have to take 2 folgard(2.2mg) +prenatal vitamins or 1 folgard+prenatal vitamins.

    Please anyone advise.

    I would take 2 folgard a day (at separate times) until you have a chance to verify with the dr. If you only took 1 folgard, it still wouldn't be enough to reach the 4mg even with the prenatals. I was to take 2 + the prenatals when ttc or pg. I have 1 copy of each mutation. But still ask your dr. to verify just in case.
