My husband has ran out of his prescription only medication, folic acid 5mg, so he has bought some from asda but it doesn't provide the strength of the individual tablets, are all folic acid tablets the same strengths?? Thanku in advance x
Is 5mg of folic acid thats prescribed by a gp the same as buying them from asda?

Folic acid does not need a prescription. You would think somewhere on the bottle it would say how much folic acid is in them. I believe they also come in 1 and 3 mg.
