BACKGROUND Synthetic folic acid (0.4-1.0 mg) consumed during the periconceptional period has been shown to reduce the risk of neural tube defects. Women with poor supplement adherence or a previous pregnancy affected by a neural tube defect may need to take higher doses of folic acid (4-5 mg). However, there are limited data on the pharmacokinetics of higher folic acid doses. OBJECTIVE Our aim was to compare steady state folate concentrations in women of childbearing age who took 5 or 1.1 mg… CONTINUE READING
