Prenate Elite Side Effects
Because prenatal vitamins (including Prenate Elite) do not need FDA approval, it is not exactly known what side effects may occur with Prenate Elite. Side effects that have been reported with the individual components of Prenate Elite, however, include headaches, constipation, and nausea. More serious side effects (such as severe nausea or vomiting or signs of an allergic reaction) should be immediately reported to your healthcare provider.
As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Prenate Elite®. However, not everyone who takes the prenatal vitamins will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate them quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Prenate Elite. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Prenate Elite side effects with you.)
Because prenatal vitamins do not have to be approved by the FDA, they are usually not studied as thoroughly as other types of medications. As a result, detailed information about the possible side effects of prenatal vitamins is not available. However, based on the side effects of the individual components of Prenate Elite, the following side effects are possible:
- Intestinal cramps
- Constipation or diarrhea
- Indigestion or heartburn
- Muscle aches and pains
- Nausea and vomiting
- Gas or belching
- Metallic taste
- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
- Yellow-orange discoloration of the urine
- Loss of appetite.
As you can see, many of the possible Prenate Elite side effects are also some of the aches, pains, and annoyances that are common during pregnancy. Therefore, it can be difficult to tell whether Prenate Elite (or the pregnancy itself) is causing a particular side effect.
