Citranatal Side Effects

Diarrhea, nausea, intestinal cramps, and fatigue are some of the side effects that may occur with Citranatal. Some of the problems reported with the prenatal vitamin are also symptoms commonly reported during pregnancy, so it can be difficult to tell whether they are true side effects of the vitamins or simply caused by the pregnancy itself.

An Introduction to Citranatal Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Citranatal® prenatal vitamins. However, not everyone who takes the vitamins will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate them quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Citranatal. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Citranatal side effects with you.)

Possible Side Effects of Citranatal

Because prenatal vitamins do not need FDA approval, they are typically not studied as thoroughly as other types of medications. Therefore, detailed information about the possible side effects of prenatal vitamins is not available. However, based on the side effects of the individual components of Citranatal, the following side effects are possible:
  • Insomnia
  • Yellow-orange discoloration of the urine
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Gas or belching
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Fatigue
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Heartburn or indigestion
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Metallic taste in the mouth
  • Headaches
  • Intestinal cramps
  • Flushing
  • Loss of appetite.
Citranatal 90 DHA prenatal vitamins (which contain more iron) are probably more likely to cause stomach upset and constipation, compared to other Citranatal prenatal vitamins.
As you can see, many of the possible Citranatal side effects are also some of the common aches, pains, and annoyances that are common during pregnancy. Therefore, it can be difficult to tell if a particular side effect is caused by Citranatal or the pregnancy itself.
