Answer: Hi, Thanks for your question. This is a query best answered by a pharmacist who has access to specific nutritional information on databases which are evidence based and current. Vitamin A can be toxic when taken in large doses. If you're considering conception then you do need to be taking folic acid 400 mcgs for at least one month before and the first three months of pregnancy. Again, speak with your doctor or a pharmacist about the individual dose you need to take as some women need a higher than recommended dose.
