The recommended PreCare dosage (for PreCare Premium and PreCare Chewables) is one tablet once a day. PreCare Chewables should be chewed thoroughly, and PreCare Premium tablets should be swallowed whole. If the PreCare dosage makes your morning sickness worse, try taking it later in the day. While you can take your PreCare dose with or without food, taking it with food may help with stomach upset.
There is only one standard recommended dose for PreCare Premium™ and PreCare® Chewables. As is always the case, do not adjust your PreCare dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
(PreCare is no longer being manufactured and should no longer be sold in the United States. Please consult your healthcare provider for further information.)
For either PreCare Premium or PreCare Chewables, the recommended dose is one tablet once a day. As you might guess, PreCare Chewables should be chewed thoroughly, while PreCare Premium tablets should be swallowed whole.
Some considerations for people taking PreCare include the following:
- PreCare Premium and PreCare Chewables come in the form of a tablet. They are taken by mouth once daily.
- It does not matter what time of day you take PreCare prenatal vitamins. If they seem to make your morning sickness worse, try taking them later in the day.
- PreCare products can be taken with food or on an empty stomach. The iron in these products may be better absorbed on an empty stomach, but most women find that taking prenatal vitamins with a little food usually helps with stomach upset.
- Let your healthcare provider know if you have trouble keeping PreCare products down or if they cause significant nausea. Your healthcare provider may have some useful suggestions or may recommend a different prenatal vitamin.
- For the prenatal vitamins to work properly, they must be taken as prescribed. PreCare will not work if you stop taking it.
- If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or PreCare dosing in general, please talk with your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
