Brief Answer: 5 PILLS IS TOO HIGH A DOSE. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. Nexito forte is often prescribed for insomnia and sleep disorders. Do not take it without prescription. Maximum daily dose is 20 mg per day. You should never have 5 pills at a time, that is too high a dose. Take care. Please feel free to ask for further clarifications.

Brief Answer: DETAILED BELOW Detailed Answer: Its usage is not without side effects, that is what I would say. It could harm your baby if you take it while pregnant. You should discontinue its use, atleast 3 months before planning a baby, and you should take regular folic acid 5 mg per day tablets 3 months pre conceptionally. If you are taking it on prescription, then your prescribing doctor would have weighed the risk benefit ratio. In any case, you should not take it without prescription. It can also affect your menstrual cycles, causing irregularities in the long run.
