Question: HI,

My wife is currently 4 months pregnant. We have revisited our Dr here. She have asked my wife to start livogen empty stomach and 2 tablets of macalvit post dinner daily. She did not mention, how much mg for macalvit.
All I could find in the market is 500mg. Is it ok to take two tablets of macalvit 500 after dinner for her?
Appreciate your response.

Thanks
doctor
