PrimaCare Uses

PrimaCare Uses in Children, Men, or the Elderly

PrimaCare is not recommended for use in children, men, or the elderly. Sometimes, prenatal vitamins are prescribed in place of regular vitamins in order to get them covered by insurance or Medicaid (although many insurance companies and Medicaid programs have caught on to this practice and now restrict prenatal vitamin coverage to pregnant women only). Many prenatal vitamins contain iron in doses that are too high for children.
 

Off-Label PrimaCare Uses

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend PrimaCare for something other than the conditions discussed in this article. People often wonder if taking prenatal vitamins may be helpful for hair growth. Although pregnant women often experience fuller, thicker hair that grows faster, this is due to hormones, not to their prenatal vitamins. There is no evidence that prenatal vitamins help with hair growth or that they would be any better than a regular multivitamin for this use.
