Citracal Prenatal + DHA Dosage
For women who are pregnant, the standard recommended Citracal Prenatal + DHA dosage is one tablet and one softgel each day. The tablet contains the vitamins and minerals, while the softgel contains the omega-3 fatty acids. If you experience extreme nausea or vomiting, just take the tablet until you can talk to your healthcare provider. Most women find that taking prenatal vitamins with a little food usually helps with stomach upset.
Citracal Prenatal + DHA Dosage: An IntroductionThere is only one recommended dose for Citracal® Prenatal + DHA prenatal vitamins. As is always the case, do not adjust your Citracal Prenatal + DHA dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
Citracal Prenatal + DHA products have been discontinued by the manufacturer. They have been replaced by the Citranatal line of products. The Citranatal products are very similar to Citracal Prenatal + DHA products but have slight differences. There are now more formulations to choose from, and the formulations no longer include vitamin A and vitamin B12.

The recommended Citracal Prenatal + DHA dose is one tablet and one softgel capsule a day. They can be taken at the same time or at different times of the day. If the softgel (which contains the omega-3 fatty acids) causes extreme nausea or vomiting, take just the tablet (which contains the vitamins and minerals) until you can speak with your healthcare provider. The tablets contain folic acid, which is very important during early pregnancy.
These prenatal vitamins come in two different forms. Citracal Prenatal 90 + DHA contains more iron (90 mg) than regular Citracal Prenatal + DHA tablets (which contain 27 mg of iron). The higher iron content tablets are probably best for women who have anemia due to an iron deficiency, while the lower iron content tablets are probably best for most other women (because they are less likely to cause stomach upset or constipation).
