PrimaCare Warnings and Precautions
Talk to your healthcare provider about PrimaCare warnings and precautions before taking it. Tell your healthcare provider if you have anemia, a fish allergy, or any other allergies. Since folic acid is in both forms of PrimaCare, warnings and precautions also include being aware that the supplement can mask anemia; therefore, certain types of anemia may not show up on blood tests if you are using PrimaCare.
You should talk with your healthcare provider prior to taking PrimaCare® or PrimaCare One if you have:
- A fish allergy
- Any other allergies, including allergies to food, dyes, or preservatives.
Also, make sure to tell your healthcare provider about all other medicines you are taking, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
Warnings and precautions to be aware of prior to taking PrimaCare include the following:
- PrimaCare products contain folic acid, which can mask certain types of anemia. This means that if you take enough folic acid, certain types of anemia may not show up on blood tests. However, this does not apply to all types of anemia. If you have anemia, check with your healthcare provider before taking PrimaCare.
- PrimaCare products contain omega-3 fatty acids that are derived from fish oil. Check with your healthcare provider before taking PrimaCare if you are allergic to fish.
- PrimaCare can potentially interact with a few other medications (see PrimaCare Interactions).
- PrimaCare products are usually considered safe for breastfeeding women (see PrimaCare and Breastfeeding).
