What this medicine is for
Leucovorin Calcium has shown good results in the treatment of certain megaloblastic anaemias resulting from folic acid deficiency.This mainly occurs in infants, during pregnancy, in malabsorption syndromes, liver disease, sprue and malnutrition. It is not more effective than folic acid for these conditions.
