FOLIC ACID ORAL SOLUTION (FOLIC ACID)

Folic Acid Oral Solution Description

Folic Acid Oral Solution or generic Folic Acid is a B9 vitamin that your doctor can prescribe for treating anemia caused by a decrease in the amount of circulating red blood cells you have in your body. Anemia is frequently a byproduct of another disease you may have that is interfering with your body’s production of healthy red blood cells or from an abnormal increase to the loss or breakdown of your red blood cells. The cause of anemia includes side effects from certain medications you take, alcoholism or substance abusers, and a lack of Folic Acid in adults and children. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

When taken as directed, Folic Acid Oral Solution will increase the amount of vitamin B9 in your body so the red blood cells are able to transport the protein that contains iron molecules, called hemoglobin, so these molecules are able to carry oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body.

Many people may not be aware that vitamin B9 (also called Folate) is water soluble, so it is not stored in your body but is carried to your body’s tissues. This is why it is essential to add sources of vitamin B9 to your family’s daily diet. Folic Acid Oral Solution is an easier way to administer to seniors and children or if there is a problem with swallowing pills.

Conditions Treated by Folic Acid Oral Solution

Folic Acid or Folate deficiency can produce serious consequences if not diagnosed and treated. Your brain, digestive system, and overall health in general can be affected. Women that are pregnant need adequate nutrition during this time to decrease the risk of neural tube defects (NTDs), the most common two being spina bifida and anencephaly.

Spina bifida involves a failure of the fetal spinal column to close properly during the first month of pregnancy. This may result in weakened or paralyzed leg muscles, bowel and bladder problems, and bone deformities that affect the spine, hips, or feet. Anencephaly is the underdevelopment of the brain and is usually fatal.

Before You Take Folic Acid Oral Solution

Tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC and Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal, dietary, or vitamin supplements. This will help your doctor plan your treatment schedule. It is important to keep follow-up appointments with your doctor so your progress can be monitored.

Use a proper dosing syringe for Folic Acid Oral Solution as regular kitchen spoons are various sizes and you may not be supplying the full amount or too much B9 vitamin. Do not start, stop, or alter the dosage of any meds unless your doctor is aware of the changes.
