Thank for asking to HCM
I appreciate your concern if you have ulcer then folic acid is not the right treatment firs of all this is to be confirmed for the ulcer and if it turned ulcer then Tab Omeprazole 40 mg once in day for six week is advisable, stop taking the folic acid if you are getting some relief with this then this could be due to the placebo effect, and nothing else, hope this information helps you have nice day.
