Trying to conceive

I've been taking multi vitamins because I've been feeling grothis with a cold coming on and religiously taking folic acid but I noticed this morning there's 100% of RDA of folic acid within the multi vitamin. I can't see it will do any harm but best to check!

No, I don't think so. I know lots of ladies that take both multivitamins and folic acid.

I read a few times that water flushes out excess folic acid so you should be fine :)

Ah lovely! Thanks girls

Nope, you can get high dose folic acid which is something like 7x the normal amount.

Not really. If you take the higher dose (has to be prescribed at 5mg compared to 400mcg of the normal dose) over a loooong time you can become deficient in B-vits.
But for a short term, and less than the prescribed high dose. You'll be just fine!
