FAQs

Methylcobalamin

Q. What is Methylcobalamin?

Methylcobalamin contains vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient which is required by the body to make red blood cells and maintain a healthy nervous system. It is also important for releasing energy from food and using vitamin B11 (folic acid).

Q. Why can’t I get sufficient vitamin B12 from my diet?

You can get vitamin B12 from sources like meat, fish, eggs and dairy products. While people who are vegetarian or vegan may not get Vitamin B12 as it is not found naturally in foods such as fruits, vegetables and grains. Therefore, deficiency of Vitamin B12 is usually noticed in vegetarians or vegans.

Q. What happens if I have vitamin B12 deficiency?

Deficiency of vitamin B12 may cause tiredness, weakness, constipation, loss of appetite, weight loss and megaloblastic anemia (a condition when red blood cells become larger in size than normal). It may also lead to nerve problems such as numbness and tingling in the hands and feet. Other symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency may include problems with balance, depression, confusion, dementia, poor memory and soreness of the mouth or tongue.

Q. How should Methylcobalamin be taken?

Methylcobalamin should be taken in the dose and duration advised by your doctor. It can be taken with or without food. However, it would be best to take it at the same time each day to avoid the chances of missing a dose.

Q. What if I forget to take a dose of Methylcobalamin?

If you forget a dose of Methylcobalamin, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take the next scheduled dose in the prescribed time. Do not double the dose to make up for the missed one as this may increase the chances of developing side effects.

Q. Is Methylcobalamin safe?

Methylcobalamin is safe if used in the dose and duration advised by your doctor. Take it exactly as directed and do not skip any dose. Follow your doctor's instructions carefully and let your doctor know if any of the side effects bother you.

Folic Acid

Q. Is it ok to take Folic Acid when not pregnant?

Usually, folic acid requirements are met from the diet and therefore additional supplements are not required. In general, Folic Acid is recommended only when you have a deficiency of folic acid. However, Folic Acid is advised to women who are pregnant and who want to conceive. The medicine should be taken at least 4 weeks before pregnancy and should continue its use up to 3 months of pregnancy. Consult your doctor if not sure.

Q. Can Folic Acid cause weight gain?

Animal studies on Folic Acid suggest that taking the medicine in excess along with a high-fat diet may lead to weight gain and fat accumulation. But this weight gain was not evident when taken along with a normal or low fat diet, even with excess Folic Acid. In humans, similar studies have not been conducted and therefore knowledge regarding weight gain is lacking. Therefore, if you are on Folic Acid then avoid excess Folic Acid and eat a low fat meal to be on a safer side.

Q. How long does Folic Acid take to work?

Folic Acid usually starts working within a few hours of taking it. If you are taking it for iron deficiency anemia, you may start feeling better after a few weeks of taking it. In case you are taking it during pregnancy, you may not notice any difference but this does not mean that the dose is not working. Continue taking Folic Acid for the duration recommended by your doctor.

Q. Why should women start taking Folic Acid before they become pregnant?

Maintaining the right level of folic acid in the body before getting pregnant reduces the risk of developing neural tube defects in the baby. Neural tube effect, in most cases, is caused if the structure (neural tube) from which the central nervous system develops (brain and spinal cord) in a baby does not form or is only partially closed. full closure of the neural tube occurs during the end of the fourth week of pregnancy. Folic acid helps in the formation of neural tubes. Therefore, to prevent this defect women should start Folic Acid before four weeks of pregnancy.

Q. Can I breastfeed while taking Folic Acid?

Yes, you can breastfeed while taking Folic Acid as it is not harmful for the baby. Folic Acid contains folic acid which is naturally found in the breast milk. Though its initial levels in the breast milk are low, it rises eventually. Since it is actively secreted in breast milk, mother may take Folic Acid every day to maintain the required levels. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions related to nutrient supplementation in breastfeeding.

Q. When should I take Folic Acid, in the morning or at night?

You can take Folic Acid any time of the day, but try to take it at the same time each day. This will help you remember to take it. Take it exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The medicine should be swallowed as a whole with a glass of water. Do not chew, cut or crush the medicine.

Q. Can Folic Acid make you sick?

Generally, Folic Acid is well tolerated and no side effects are reported in the majority of people. However, some may experience stomach and intestinal problems which include nausea (feeling sick), loss of appetite, bloating and excessive passing of gas. The medicine may also worsen the symptoms of any coexisting vitamin B12 deficiency. If you experience any of these symptoms, consult your doctor but do not stop taking Folic Acid.

Q. How long do I need to take Folic Acid?

The duration of treatment with Folic Acid depends on the reason you are taking it for. For instance, if you are planning your pregnancy then you need to start taking it 4 weeks prior to pregnancy and should continue up to the first 3 months of pregnancy. Whereas, if you are taking it for folic acid deficiency then you may have to take it for 4 months. The duration of treatment for this can increase if your deficiency does not subside. If you are taking it to reduce the side effects of methotrexate then you may need to take it for as long as you are taking methotrexate. Consult your prescribing physician to know the exact duration of your therapy.
