Prenatal Vitamins

What If I Take an Overdose of Prenatal Vitamins?

It is not exactly known what to expect from an overdose with prenatal vitamins. It is reasonable to assume that the side effects from taking too much of any of the active ingredients (particularly iron) in them might cause problems. If you think you or someone else may have taken too much, seek immediate medical attention.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you forget to take your prenatal vitamins, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose. If you vomit after taking a dose, do not take another dose (it is difficult to tell how much of the vitamins were absorbed into your body). If you regularly vomit after taking a dose, talk with your healthcare provider.
 

Are Generic Prenatal Vitamins Available?

Several manufacturers make generic, low-cost prenatal vitamins (see Generic Prenatal Vitamins for more information).
