Does full-aid plus contain folic acid in it?

I am pregnant for 12 weeks now. My doctor prescribed full-aid plus for vitamin intake. It contains lycopene 2000 mcg, methylcobalamin 500 msg, wheat germ oil 25 mg ,zinc sulphate, lutein. I am not sure if folic acid is there in this tablet and read that folic acid is very important for child s growth. Should I take second opinion in taking this tablet

Hello,

I tried an internet search but ambiguous information came up. If the ingredients are the ones you've mentioned then there is no folic acid in this supplement. Folic acid seems to be important during pregnancy, particularly in the first trimester. Although most pregnant women use folic acid, your doctor is the right person to provide appropriate advice. I suggest you discuss this matter with your doctor first!

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
