Another question about dosage...sorry!

Mine list the quantities of each separate b vit, so should each one be 50mg or in total??

Thanks

Each one is 50mg in mine, except folic acid which is at 400mg.

My vit b complex is basically 100rda (so crap??!)
I'm confused by mg and ~g (haven't got the sign for it!!)

In my bvits I have - b1 1.4mg; b2 1.6mg; b3 18mg; b6 2mg; folic 200~g; b12 1~g;
In my prenatal I have - b1 1.6mg; b2b 1.8mg; b6 2.6mg; folic 700~g amongst other ones too

Am thinking these aren't really helping???!

Not really. I'd look for the B-Complex called B-50. I don't know if what they would call it in the UK, but if you go to the chemist's, they might know what you are looking for. Ask for a vitamin with 50mg of all B vitamins except folic acid - 400mcg of that

Great thread!

I have just bought B6 50mg (2,500% RDA) and
B12 25mcg (2,500% RDA) from Holland & Barratt.

Pregnacare contains B6 10mg 500% RDA and
B12 6mcg 600% RDA

Do you think that is okay? I have been taking Pregnacare Plus for a few months now. I am now CD8. Not sure when to start taking B6 and B12 - now or after OV (no clue when, lol!)

Also - How long can we carry on taking B6 and B12 after conception?

Thanks!
