News About Folic Acid

A daily multivitamin with folic acid in it is now recommended for women of child-bearing age. You can purchase a bottle of 130 tablets at the M.S. Shook Student Health Service Pharmacy for $3.00 without being seen by a clinician.

For women, folic acid has been shown to decrease the incidence of neural tube defect and spinal bifida during the early development of the fetus. Because 50% of pregnancies are unplanned, ongoing folic acid intake is very important. Please ask the pharmacy or health care staff if you have further questions.
