S8 Note - This prescription item is Schedule 8 and can only be supplied on a script from a registered doctor in Queensland. Any prescriptions from any other state cannot be filled and will be returned in the mail

This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

General Information

Blackmores Folate 500mcg provides a daily dose of
500mcg of folic acid which if taken daily for one month before
conception and during pregnancy, may reduce the risk of
women having a child with birth defects of the brain and/or
spinal cord, such as spina bifida or anencephaly. Folic Acid can
also assist in maintaining normal blood.

Foetal formation increases the mother's need for folic acid and
deficiency is common during pregnancy. Supplementation of
folic acid is recommended for at least one month prior to
conception and for the duration of the pregnancy, and may
reduce the incidence of neural tube defects in the unborn child.
Deficiency of folic acid is common in the general population,
resulting from prolonged stress, chronic alcoholism, viral
infection and liver disease. When folic acid is lacking, red blood
cells become enlarged and oxygen carrying capacity is reduced,
resulting in symptoms of breathlessness, headache, pallor,
muscle fatigue and exhaustion. Additionally, deficiency of folic
acid (along with vitamin B6), is associated with elevated plasma
levels of homocysteine.


Active ingredient per tablet Folic Acid 500mcg.


Adults: Take one tablet daily with main meal, or as professionally prescribed.

Do not exceed the stated dose. If you have had a baby with spina bifida/neural tube defects, seek medical advice before using this product.
