How much folic acid should your spouse take?

 

Following are the conditions outlined by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services which will help you determine how much folic acid your spouse should take. 

  • She is able to get pregnant. She should take 400 mcg of folic acid every day
  • She is pregnant. She should take 600mcg of folic acid every day.
  • She is breastfeeding. She should take 500mcg of folic acid every day
  • She has had a baby with spina bifida or anencephaly and wants to get pregnant again. She should talk with her doctor, and ask for a prescription for a higher dose of folic acid. She should take 4,000 micrograms (4,000 mcg) starting at least one to three months before getting pregnant and during the first 3 months of pregnancy. Thatís 10 times the normal amount! But donít let her try to get the larger amount by taking more than one multivitamin or prenatal vitamin a day. She could get too much of another vitamin that could harm her or the baby
  • You spouse has had a baby with spina bifida or anencephaly. She is not planning to have another baby. She should take 400 mcg of folic acid every day.
