Brief Answer:
Not required in pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Vitamin E can be taken in pregnancy, however it is not needed in pregnancy.
It is better to take multivitamin containing folic acid , DHA and methylcobalamine which is likely to benefit to both the mother and fetus.
Vitamin E requirement is not increased in pregnancy, and hence supplementation not required.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Hello Dr, Iam a 53-year old woman. My skin is comparatively very dry. Since my teenage I am having some itching and irritation at different parts of my feet and elbows and on right knee. I approached many skin specialists, and tried many ointments. They all give temporary cure. A few weeks back, I consulted with a skin specialist and he recommended to take a biopsy to distinguish whether it is eczema or psoriasis; it is confirmed as psoriasis. I did my LFT and having no problem, sonography of my stomach was also conducted, and having no problem.. Now the doctor prescribed Oncortex 7.5 (once in a week for 3 weeks) and Tablet Folic acid 5 mg twice in a week. When I checked Oncortex in the web, i happened to see its side effects. So slightly confused whether to take or not. I need your advice. My dr also said to consult with him after 3 weeks. Hope nothing will happened to me harmful. I have blood pressure and cholesterol, taking medicines for them regularly. Moreover, I am taking tablets for once in a month for Vit B12 deficiency.
