The American Academy of Neurology Practice Parameters recommends Folic acid supplementation of at least 0.4 mg daily in all women of childbearing age to prevent any significant congenital malformation (George, 2017). Women who are in the childbearing age and on anti-seizure drugs should be given Folic acid of 0.8 mg to avoid the risks for AEDs-related congenital malformations for future good pregnancy outcomes (George, 2017).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
