Pharmacological action - compensating for folic acid deficiency.
Vitamin B (vitamin B, vitamin B9), can be synthesized by intestinal microflora. In the body, folic acid is reduced to tetrahydrofolic acid, which is a coenzyme involved in various metabolic processes. Necessary for the normal maturation of megaloblasts and the formation of normoblasts. Stimulates erythropoiesis, participates in the synthesis of amino acids (including glycine, methionine), nucleic acids, purines, pyrimidines, in the metabolism of choline, histidine.
Folic acid is well and completely absorbed in the digestive tract, mainly in the upper parts of the duodenum. Almost completely bound to plasma proteins. It is activated in the liver under the influence of the enzyme dihydrofolate reductase, turning into tetrahydrofolic acid. Tmax - 30–60 min. Gets through the blood-brain and placental barriers into breast milk.
Excreted by the kidneys mainly in the form of metabolites; if the accepted dose significantly exceeds the daily need for folic acid, it is displayed in unchanged form.
Excreted through hemodialysis.

Side effects of 9 Months Folic acid
Allergic reactions: skin rash, itching, bronchospasm, erythema, hyperthermia.
On the part of the digestive tract: nausea, bloating, bitterness in the mouth, anorexia.
With prolonged use may develop hypovitaminosis B12.
Reduces the effect of phenytoin (requires an increase in its dose).
Analgesics (long-term therapy), anticonvulsant drugs (including phenytoin and carbamazepine), estrogens, oral contraceptives increase the need for folic acid.
Antacids, colestyramine, sulfonamines (including sulfasalazine) reduce the absorption of folic acid.
Methotrexate, pyrimethamine, triamterene, trimethoprim inhibit dihydrofolate reductase and reduce the effect of folic acid (instead of it, folinate should be prescribed to patients using these drugs).
With simultaneous use of chloramphenicol, neomycin, polymyxin, tetracycline absorption of folic acid is reduced.
Dosage and administration
Inside, after eating.
With a folic acid deficiency of 400 μg (1 tab.) Per day.
For the prevention of the development of neural tube defects in the fetus in the first trimester of pregnancy - 400–800 mcg (1-2 tablets).
It may occur with long-term use (more than 1-2 months) of folic acid in doses of more than 1000 mg per day and as a result of joint use with vitamin-mineral complexes.
For the prevention of hypovitaminosis, most preferably a balanced diet. Foods rich in folic acid - green vegetables (lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, carrots), fresh liver, legumes, beets, eggs, cheese, nuts, cereals.
Folic acid is not used for the treatment of B12-deficient (pernicious), normocytic and aplastic anemia, as well as refractory anemia to therapy. When pernicious (B12-deficient) anemia, folic acid, improving hematological parameters, masks neurological complications. While pernicious anemia cannot be ruled out, the administration of folic acid in doses exceeding 100 µg / day is not recommended (except for pregnancy and lactation).
It should be borne in mind that patients on hemodialysis need increased amounts of folic acid.
During treatment, antacids should be applied 2 hours after taking folic acid, Kolestiramine - 4-6 hours before or 1 hour after taking folic acid. It should be borne in mind that antibiotics may distort (to give obviously underestimated indicators) the results of microbiological evaluation of plasma and erythrocyte folate concentrations. With the use of large doses of folic acid, as well as therapy for a long period, a decrease in the concentration of vitamin B12 is possible.
