Is Extra Folic Acid Dangerous?

QUESTION

I've just realized that I have been taking an overdose of folic acid (5 mg a day) for several weeks by mistake.

How dangerous can it be and what can I do for that now? I am five weeks pregnant, have had a miscarriage in the past and feeling nervous about the whole thing, even more now that I realized I've done such a big mistake!

Is there anything I can do?

Thank you,

It has been a long 3 weeks... We got married on September 4th,2010. It was a day I'll never forget, thanks to (hurricane) Earl. But in spite of that, it turned out to be a beautiful afternoon, and glorious celebration of LOVE. A few days later (Wednesday, September 8th) we had our 20 week ultrasound.
