Uses
Apo-Folic (Folic Acid) is a B vitamin, which can help the body to produce new cells. Patients may be given this supplement as a treatment for folic acid deficiency, as well as for anaemia occurring as a result of folic acid deficiency. It is also used to treat other conditions associated with folic acid deficiency, such as liver disease and ulcerative colitis. Pregnant women often take folic acid to prevent pregnancy complications and birth defects. Certain people may also take it to help prevent cancer, heart disease or stroke. Other popular uses for it include treating osteoporosis, nerve pain, vitiligo, loss of memory, Alzheimer's disease, sleep difficulty, and other conditions not listed here.

Dosage and Administration
Apo-Folic (Folic Acid) should be taken in accordance with the instructions provided by your doctor or on the package. This supplement comes as tablets, which can be swallowed whole with a full glass of water. In some cases, patients treating folic acid deficiency have been told to take 250mcg to 1000mcg (0.25mg to 1mg) per day. The recommended dosage for other conditions will vary. Therefore, every patient is advised to consult their doctor before they begin taking this supplement, so that their doctor can tell them the correct amount to take.

Side effects
Apo-Folic (Folic Acid) is generally considered to be safe, and side effects are uncommon. However, patients who take excessive amounts of folic acid may experience side effects, such as:

  • Diarrhoea or nausea
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Changes in mood
  • Confusion
  • Seizures

Because high doses can cause side effects, it is essential that patients only take the proper dosage. There is also a slight possibility that prolonged use of folic acid may cause serious side effects. Ask your doctor if you are concerned about this.

Precautions
Do not exceed the recommended dosage of Apo-Folic (Folic Acid). Before you begin taking any new medicine, either prescription or over-the-counter, check with your doctor or pharmacist. Check any other vitamin products you may be taking for folic acid content. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if any other medicines that you take contain folic acid.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Apo-Folic (Folic Acid) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
