Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

Saaz 500 is given for a prolonged period of time. Some of my patients are on it for more than 2 years now.
Saaz 500 can be taken during pregnancy however you should be on folic acid supplements. If you are planning to have a child then I suggest you to take Folic acid 5 mg daily. I also recommend you to stop taking Saaz during the first and the second trimester. However please speak to your doctor before taking these decisions.

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me
