I'm taking the higher dose too and doesn't make me feel unwell. I always just make sure to eat before taking my supplements!

Yes I was prescribed that amount until throughout my pregnancy. I had morning sickness until the day I gave birth so no idea about it making you nauseous!

Hi! I'm pregnant with twins and my GP has prescribed a higher dose of folic acid - 5mg, which is >10x the normal amount of 0.4mg!

Has anyone else been prescribed a higher dose of folic acid?
And did it make you feel nauseous? I'm suffering with awful nausea and am worried this will make it worse.
