Brief Answer: No harm Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX There is no harm in taking a double dose one time. But please make sure that you dont overdose regularly. Ont tablet a day is enough. Folic acid is essential in the growth of the fetus after you get pregnant. Continue taking it upto 3 months after you become pregnant.

Brief Answer: Fine Detailed Answer: Its fine to take the FOLINEXT D from now. It should be started 3 months before conception. So if your husband is coming in march, then you can take it from now. But i suggest you take one tablet a day.
