Drugs Group

Ferrous Sulphate 150 mg + Folic Acid 500 mcg

Indications

Preventing iron and folic acid deficiency in pregnancy. This iron and folic acid supplement is designed for use by pregnant women who are at high risk of developing iron and folic acid deficiency during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy. This may include women carrying twins or triplets and women who have had pregnancies close together. The supplement will also correct mild iron deficiency anaemia if this has already developed before the supplements are started. However, it does not contain a high enough dose to treat folic acid deficiency anaemia and should not be used for this purpose. You shouldn't use this medicine as your folic acid supplement for the first trimester of pregnancy. Women are recommended to take 400 micrograms of folic acid daily both before conception and for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, in order to reduce the risk of your baby having spina bifida or another neural tube defect. This medicine only contains 350 micrograms folic acid and so is not suitable for this purpose. Once you reach 12 weeks you can stop taking your 400 microgram folic acid and take this medicine instead, because your baby's nervous system is developed by this stage so you don't need as much folic acid. Not every pregnant women needs to take an iron and folic acid supplement, so you should talk to your doctor, pharmacist or midwife about whether this medicine is suitable for you.
