Folic Acid RX Description

Folic Acid RX generic or brand, is a water-soluble B9 vitamin that a doctor may prescribe if you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant. This helps to ensure rapid cell growth and division, healthy red blood cells, and to reduce the risk of neural tube defects in the developing embryo. Proper levels of Folic Acid or Folate, is also essential for producing DNA, the repair of DNA, and DNA methylation, a process that can ensure normal development by deactivating X-chromosome. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Take Folic Acid RX to Help Baby Get a Healthy Head Start

Folate is the natural vitamin found in green, leafy food such as spinach, broccoli, asparagus, okra as well as legumes and citrus fruits. Folic Acid is found in the supplements you can purchase but is basically the same as Folate. Usually, your doctor will recommend taking Folic Acid RX when you start planning to become pregnant. If not, you should start as soon as you are aware that you are pregnant and take Folic Acid until your 4th month of pregnancy. Adding foods to your diet that contain Folate are also recommended.

More About Neural Tube Defects

Neural tube defects (NTDs) may be a higher risk for an unborn baby if you have diabetes, you/ your partner have an NTD or there is a family history of any, or a prior pregnancy resulted in an NTD. A higher dosage of oral Folic Acid RX may be prescribed to lower that risk. Neural tube defects include spina bifida and anencephaly.

The neural tube is a layer of cells that fold over and join during the 6th week of pregnancy and will go on to develop into the baby’s brain and spinal cord. If this tube does not properly fuse together, the baby’s brain or spine will be affected. Spina bifida can have varying degrees of severity depending on the location of the opening. If the opening is at the head area, then anencephaly results and the baby will not survive.

Before Folic Acid RX is Prescribed

Explain other medical conditions or allergies you may have to the doctor and provide a list of current over the counter and prescription drugs you take or use, including herbal and vitamin supplements. The doctor can then determine if it is safe to buy Folic Acid RX as it is the right medicine for you and whether you require a higher dose depending on your medical history.

Folic Acid RX Precautions

Talk to the doctor before starting or stopping any new or existing meds as this could affect the amount of Folic Acid your body actually absorbs. High doses of Folic Acid can block the effects of seizure medications. Although regarded as safe, Folic Acid RX and other drugs should be stored safely out of the reach of children.
