What If I Take an Overdose?
It is not known exactly what to expect from an overdose with Citranatal. The most dangerous effects from taking too much of this vitamin are likely to be caused by the iron, as iron poisoning can be very dangerous, particularly in young children. If you think you or someone else may have taken too much, seek immediate medical attention.

Storage Methods for Citranatal
Citranatal should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The tablets and softgels should be stored in an airtight container or in their original blister packaging. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
If you forget to take your Citranatal dose, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
If you vomit after taking a dose, do not take another (because it is difficult to tell how much of the drug was absorbed into your body). If you regularly vomit after taking Citranatal, talk with your healthcare provider.
Is There a Generic Version of Citranatal?
Technically, there are no generic equivalents for prenatal vitamins (because tests are not performed to make sure that the vitamins act in the same way in the body). However, "generic" prenatal vitamins may be available that have similar active ingredients as those found in these products.
