Folic Acid Information

Folic Acid Details (Brand and Generic)

CanadaPharmacyOnline offers Folic Acid and other over-the-counter Non-prescription medications at huge savings. We currently have the generic Folic Acid from Canada. The brand version of Folic Acid is not available.


Folic Acid Tablets are available in the strength of 1 mg and 5 mg.


Folic Acid belongs to the vitamin B group. Folic Acid tablets may be used to treat folate deficiency anaemia caused by poor diet, poor absorption of food (such as in coeliac disease or a digestive disorder called sprue) or increased use of folate in the body (as in pregnancy) to prevent folate deficiency caused by some medicines (e.g. those used to treat epilepsy such as phenytoin, phenobarbital and primidone); folate deficiency caused by long-term red blood cell damage or kidney dialysis; neural tube defects in babies (e.g. spina bifida), where women are at risk of having an affected child. Folic acid is a type of B vitamin that is normally found in foods such as dried beans, peas, lentils, oranges, whole-wheat products, brussels sprouts, and spinach. Folic acid helps your body produce and maintain new cells, and also helps prevent changes to DNA that may lead to cancer. Folic acid is sometimes used with other medications to treat pernicious anemia. Folic acid used alone will not treat pernicious anemia and other anemias not related to Vitamin B12 deficiency. Take all of your medications as directed.

Side Effects and Precautions

The common Folic Acid side effects may include nausea, loss of appetite; bloating, gas, stomach pain; bitter or unpleasant taste in your mouth; confusion, trouble concentrating; sleep problems; depression; or feeling excited or irritable. Call your doctor right away if you have any of the serious side effects such as:
• Allergic reaction (hypersensitivity) e.g. itchy/red skin, rash;
• Severe allergic reaction (anaphylactic reaction) – swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat or difficulty breathing or swallowing, shock (cold sweaty skin, weak pulse, dry mouth, dilated pupils);
• Stomach and intestines: loss of appetite, feeling sick, a bloated feeling, wind.

Warnings and Interactions

Do not take Folic Acid tablets and tell your doctor if you have:
• An allergy (hypersensitivity) to folic acid or any of the other ingredients in the tablets;
• A malignant (cancerous) disease;
• An untreated vitamin B12 deficiency such as in certain anaemias and lifelong vegetarians;
• Pernicious anaemia (a form of anaemia caused by lack of vitamin B12 ) or another condition caused by vitamin B12 deficiency.

• Have a folate dependent tumour;
• Have any disease that reduces the amount of vitamin B12 in the body;
• Have a kidney disease;
• Have epilepsy or other seizure disorder;
• Have cirrhosis or other liver disorder;
• Have or ever had alcoholism. Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription. Especially antiepileptics (to treat epilepsy) such as phenytoin, phenobarbital, primidone, sodium valproate and carbamazepine; antibacterials (to treat infections) such as trimethoprim, chloramphenicol and cotrimoxazole; sulfasalazine (to treat ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease or rheumatoid arthritis); methotrexate (to treat Crohn’s disease, psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis); lithium for mental health problems; triamterene, a diuretic (or ‘water tablet’); alcohol; aspirin for pain relief or to thin your blood.
