Gesticare Warnings and Precautions

There are many warnings and precautions to be aware of before starting Gesticare. For example, since Gesticare contains folic acid, it may mask certain types of anemia (meaning certain types of anemia may not show up on blood tests). If you have anemia, check with your healthcare provider before taking this prenatal vitamin.

What Should I Tell My Healthcare Provider Before Taking Gesticare?

You should talk with your healthcare provider prior to taking Gesticare™ if you have:
 
  • Anemia
  • Any allergies, including allergies to food, dyes, or preservatives.
     
Also, make sure to tell your healthcare provider about all other medicines you are taking, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
 
(Regular Gesticare is no longer being manufactured. Gesticare DHA is still available.)
 

Specific Precautions and Warnings for Gesticare

Some warnings and precautions to be aware of prior to taking this product include the following:
 
  • Gesticare contains folic acid, which can mask certain types of anemia. This means that if you take enough folic acid, certain types of anemia may not show up on blood tests. However, this does not apply to all types of anemia. If you have anemia, check with your healthcare provider before taking Gesticare. This is not a problem with iron-deficiency anemia (a common type of anemia in pregnant women).
     
  • Gesticare can potentially interact with a few other medications (see Gesticare Drug Interactions).
     
  • Gesticare is usually considered safe for breastfeeding women (see Gesticare and Breastfeeding).
