Welcome to HCM.

Both are different drugs.Folvite contains only folicacid 5 mg.

Folibest contains folicacid with iodine which is more important molecule in pregnancy for nutritional supplement.It is also helpful to healthy brain development.

Both drug should be taken during pregnancy.

Folvite is also helpful in recurrent apthous stomatitis,anaemia.
