Important Safety Information about B-Nexa®
You should not take more than 1 mg per day of folic acid unless you are under the care of a healthcare professional, as it may mask the symptoms of a potentially more serious condition.
Taking ginger if you have a bleeding disorder or while you are also taking a blood thinner or other medication that affects the blood may increase the risk of bleeding.
