folic acid on an empty stomach = UGH.


Recommended Posts

maybe ive got a little virus...maybe its the folic acid?

im not really sure.  im starting to get the whole topamax - losing my appetite.  i take my meds in the morning, and take 2mg of folic acid along with them.  i didnt have anything to eat this morning and had a HORRIBLE upset stomach and had to run to the bathroom...like, IMMEDIATELY.

could this have been the cause?  or am i way off...

any ideas?

thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

Don't know...but even vitamins on an empty stomach can make me feel like crap. If you can't eat, can you at least handle drinking some juice a few minutes before you swallow the pills?

If you really want to do a test of sorts, try taking the folic acid at a different time...maybe with lunch?

yeah im going to try switching the time and see if it makes a difference.  most of the time i have something to eat before i get into work in the morning...so i dont ever have this problem.  now with the no appetite thing - UGH.

thanks! xox

I take my synthriod and folic acid early in the morning, when the dog wakes me up to feed her, then I go back to sleep for a few hours. Folic acid has never bothered me taking it on an empty stomach but maybe I sleep through it?
