Pregnancy Home > Expecta Side Effects

The FDA is not required to approve supplements such as Expecta Lipil. Therefore, the possible side effects of Expecta Lipil have not been extensively studied. However, based on the side effects of DHA (the active ingredient of Expecta Lipil), side effects may include nausea, vomiting, and belching. You should contact your healthcare provider immediately if you experience more serious Expecta Lipil side effects (such as any unusual bleeding, bruising easily, or signs of an allergic reaction).

An Introduction to Expecta Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Expecta® Lipil® DHA. However, not everyone who takes the supplement will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it 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 Expecta Lipil. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Expecta Lipil side effects with you.)

Possible Side Effects of Expecta

Because supplements like Expecta Lipil do not need FDA approval, they are usually not studied as extensively as other types of medications. As a result, detailed information about the possible side effects of such products is not available. However, based on the side effects of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), the active ingredient of Expecta Lipil, the following side effects are possible:
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Gas and belching.
As you can see, the possible Expecta Lipil side effects are also some of the common aches, pains, and annoyances that can occur during pregnancy. Therefore, it can be difficult to tell whether Expecta Lipil (or the pregnancy itself) is causing a particular side effect.
