- 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.
- These 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 vitamins to work properly, they must be taken as prescribed. They will not work if you stop taking them.
