9.1.2 Drugs used in megaloblastic anaemias
NICE PH11: Maternal and child nutrition
Folic acid has few indications for long-term therapy since most causes of folate deficiency are self-limiting or will yield to a short course of treatment. It should not be used in undiagnosed megaloblastic anaemia unless vitamin B12 is administered concurrently otherwise neuropathy may be precipitated.
