When and How to Take It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Prenate Mini include the following:
  • This vitamin comes in the form of a softgel capsule. It is normally taken by mouth once a day.
  • You can take Prenate Mini with or without food. The iron in the vitamin may be better absorbed on an empty stomach, but most women find taking prenatal vitamins with food can help reduce stomach upset.
  • Prenate Mini can be taken at any time; however, you should try to take it at about the same time every day. If you find you are having morning sickness, you may want to take your vitamin later in the day.
  • Let your healthcare provider know if Prenate Mini causes significant nausea or vomiting. He or she may have some useful suggestions or may be able to recommend a different prenatal vitamin to try.
  • For this prenatal vitamin to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
