About Folgod-Active Tablet 10's

Folgod-Active Tablet 10's belongs to a class of medications called 'vitamins' used to treat or prevent anaemia (lack of blood) caused due to deficiency of folic acid, anaemia in pregnancy, anaemia due to damaged red blood cells, anaemia in kidney dialysis patients and anaemia that occurs as a side effect of certain medicines. Folgod-Active Tablet 10's may be used in women before and during pregnancy to prevent spina bifida (abnormality of the spine) in babies. Anaemia is a condition in which the body does not have enough red blood cells for carrying the adequate oxygen required to various body tissues.

The Folgod-Active Tablet 10's contains Folic acid (a form of vitamin B9) that increases healthy red blood cell (RBC) production in the body that carries oxygen throughout the body. As a result, an adequate amount of haemoglobin (Hb) is produced in the body, so that body's each tissue gets a sufficient supply of oxygen.

Take Folgod-Active Tablet 10's as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take Folgod-Active Tablet 10's for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you based on your medical condition. You may experience nausea, black stool, constipation, loss of appetite, bloating or flatulence (gas) in some cases. Most of these side effects of Folgod-Active Tablet 10's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor. 

If you are allergic to Folgod-Active Tablet 10's or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult a doctor before using Folgod-Active Tablet 10's.
