What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

Pregnancy, and the time around pregnancy, is a busy time, and it is only natural that you may occasionally miss a dose of your vitamins. While you should try to take your vitamin every day, don't worry too much if you miss a dose here and there.
 
If you do happen to forget a dose of PreferaOB, take it as soon as you remember, unless it is almost time for the next dose. In this case, simply skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
 
If you vomit after taking PreferaOB, do not take another dose, as it can be difficult to tell how much of the active ingredients were absorbed into your body. If you regularly vomit after taking the vitamin, talk with your healthcare provider about ways to manage this side effect.
 

Can I Buy Generic PreferaOB?

PreferaOB is not available in generic form. Technically, there are no generic equivalents for prenatal vitamins, as tests are not performed to make sure the vitamins act in the same way in the body. However, "generic" prenatal vitamins may be available that have similar active ingredients as PreferaOB (see Generic PreferaOB).
