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.

Both myself and my husband have taken all the required tests are all of them have come out normal. We have done karyotyping too and I've undergone HSG and the left tube is patent. Currentl,I'm taking the following medicines: Argin,Antoxid,ASA and Folvite. We are trying to get pregnant last 2 cycles. Can you please advise me on if I should be taking any other medicine to increase my chances of conception? Thank you very much, Lakshmi.
