- Those affected by alcohol use disorders
- Pregnant women

- Those who suffer from ailments like celiac disease and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) interfere with nutrient absorption.
There may be interactions between Folic Acid supplements and a number of frequently given medication, including:
Drugs for treating epilepsy, including valproate (Depacon), phenytoin (Dilantin), carbamazepine (Carbatrol, Tegretol, etc.), and sulfasalazine (Azulfadine), as well as methotrexate, which is used to treat various malignancies and autoimmune illnesses.
Before using Folic Acid supplements if you’re taking one of these medications, please consult your doctor.
Take 1 tablet per day after a meal. Take 2 hours before or after any medication. Other medications’ efficacy may be impacted by folic acid too. Avoid taking your folic acid within two hours of having aluminium- or magnesium-containing antacids, since this may prevent the folic acid from being effectively absorbed.
