Brief Answer: 5 mg once daily Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. Folic acid is advised to be taken during the preconception period and during the first three months of pregnancy to prevent the development of neural tube defects in the baby. It is taken in a dosage of 5 mg once daily. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
