Hi,
You have not written the reason for the prescription.
Is it pregnancy?
You have to swallow it with water.
It is to be taken once per day only.Better to take at same time-either morn or evening.
You can take it either before or after meals.
Wish u good health.

Dear,please swallow the tablet with water.This needs to be swallow to be effective.Even if it is a vitamin do not take without advise from any doctor.Other thing this vitamin is normally given to all the pregnant mothers for the first 3 months to prevent congenital defect in the baby.So do not worry about the same.You will not have any problem.Buy and all the best.

Dear Respected panel, I have some gestric problems and suffer from sudden diorrea, stomuch pains even if i am eating simple home cooked food. Such attacks last for a week or so when I have bloating of the stomuch, increased level of acidity etc. These atttacks are repeated almost every two months. Recently I did a CT Scan and the findings were There is evidence of Sigmoid Diverticulosis with no evidence of acute inflammation. I am also on these medication: Amlopin 5mg, Batacod 50mg,Valzaar 80, Clopivas 75 AP, Tonact TG, Folvite 5mg, Multivitamin. As the blood test shows increased level of CPK value, I have been advised to cut out Tonact TG. The Gestro specialist has asked me to take Selace Forte and Maxep daily. My Questions are. 1. what is the medication I should take in place of Tonact TG. Most other Statins have side effects on me ( headac, non Concentration). 2. what is the remidy for Signoid Divertucolisis. 3. Are there any side effects of Selace Forte and Maxepa on me as I am on Blood pressure reducing medication and Clopivas AP 75 which is a blood thinner. I regularly walk 5 km daily, do my back stretches and play golf twice a week. I am 63 years old, weight 65kg, height 5 10 . I would be very greatful if you would advice me in the matter.

I am 30 yrs old and got married before 3 yrs. We keep trying for a baby which have not succeded yet. We also made a sperm test to my husband which showed a positive result. FYI: I am an Indian.

We also made a test on my side which showed no negative results. My weight is nearing 72kg.
Moreover i intake tablets oxetol 600mg (1-0-1), Lobazom 10 mg(0-0-1) with folvite 5mg (1-0-0) for my neuro problem.

I am unable to analyze the fault which delays my pregnancy - can you say me whether these tablet intakes can affect my pregnancy?
