How can I take vitamin B9?

Dietary supplements of vitamin B9 (or folic acid) are generally taken orally in a pill or capsule form.
Vitamin B9 usually comes as part of a multivitamin tablet or a prenatal vitamin. But it is available in tablets on its own or in solutions for injection when higher doses are needed. Tablets should be taken with at least eight ounces of water, and doctor's instructions should be followed at all times when receiving injections. If your stomach is sensitive to vitamins, you can take the tablets with food or increased amounts of water. Take the tablets as many times daily as the label or your doctor instructs. Be careful not to exceed the maximum dose, as this could cause side effects.
