Characteristics of the substance Folic acid

Yellow or yellowish orange crystalline powder. Virtually nerastvorim in water and alcohol, easily soluble in alkalis. Hygroscopic. Decays in the light.


Mode action - Replenishing deficiency of folic acid, hematopoietic.

In the body it is converted into tetrahydrofolic acid, which is necessary for the maturation of megaloblasts and their transformation into normoblasts. With its deficiency, a megaloblastic type of hematopoiesis develops. It occupies an important place in the exchange of purines and pyrimidines, the synthesis of nucleic acids, the metabolism of amino acids (glycine, methionine and histidine). After ingestion, folic acid, connecting in the stomach with an internal factor of Kastla (a specific glycoprotein), is absorbed in the upper part of the duodenum. Almost completely binds to plasma proteins. It is activated in the liver by the action of the enzyme dihydrofolate reductase, turning into tetrahydrofolic acid. Cmax in the blood is reached after 30-60 minutes. Excreted by the kidneys both in unchanged form and in the form of metabolites.

Application of the substance Folic acid

Megaloblastic anemia, caused by a deficiency of folic acid; Tropical and non-tropical sprue, drug and radiation anemia and leukopenia, chronic gastroenteritis, intestinal tuberculosis, folic acid deficiency, incl. With malnutrition, pregnancy, infancy and childhood.



Side effects of the substance Folic acid

Allergic reactions: bronchospasm, erythema, fever, skin rashes.


Joint use with analgesics, anticonvulsant drugs, antacids, colestyramine, sulfonamides, antibiotics, cytostatics reduces the effect.

Routes of administration


Precautions for the substance Folic acid

Folic acid is not used for treatment of B12-deficient (pernicious), normocytic and aplastic anemia. With pernicious anemia, folic acid, improving hematological parameters, masks neurological manifestations. While pernicious anemia is not ruled out, administration of folic acid in doses exceeding 0.1 mg / day is not recommended.
