How much folic acid is too much?

Hello! I’m taking sangobion for iron (which also contains 1.0mg folic acid) and 5mg folic acid tablets. Is that too much?

Actually the sangobion’s enough. Think we need less than 1mg a day. But I don’t think taking the extra 5mg a day (for the first trimester only) is harmful.

Thank you! Just an update. My NUH doctor just prescribed me to take the 21st Century multivitamin that contains 8mg folic acid. I am currently 15 weeks. Should I stop taking my 5mg folic acid and only eat sangobion and the 21st century multivitamin?
