Brief Answer:
adequate amount in this tablet

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thanks for writing to us with your query. Iron supplementation is necessary to cope with pregnancy induced anemia which is physiological. For proper absorption of iron and then for proper haematopoiesis Folic acid is required. This tab contains enough Folic acid necessary for the available iron. Of you are taking any other Folic acid tablet then you may stop it.
