Stuart Prenatal Overdose

As with other multivitamins, it is possible to take too much Stuart Prenatal. Because Stuart Prenatal vitamins contain iron, taking too much of them may cause dangerous symptoms of iron poisoning, including fluid in the lungs, seizures, or a rapid heart rate. Treatment options for a Stuart Prenatal overdose may include administering certain medications, pumping the stomach, or treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose.

An Introduction to Stuart Prenatal Overdose

Stuart Prenatal® and Stuart Prenatal + DHA® are non-prescription prenatal vitamin and mineral supplements. Just as with other multivitamins, it is possible to take too much Stuart Prenatal. The specific effects of a Stuart Prenatal overdose can vary depending on a number of factors, including the Stuart Prenatal dosage and whether it was taken with other medications or substances.
 

Dangerous Stuart Prenatal Overdose Effects

An overdose with any multivitamin (including Stuart Prenatal) may cause bothersome symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation. Fortunately, these are not usually life-threatening problems. However, Stuart Prenatal vitamins contain iron, and taking too much iron can be extremely dangerous (especially for young children) and may result in iron poisoning. Symptoms of iron poisoning may include:
 
  • Dehydration
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
  • Low blood pressure (hypotension)
  • A rapid heart rate (tachycardia)
  • Fluid in the lungs
  • Fever and chills
  • Flushing
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Metallic taste in the mouth
  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Blue lips and fingernails
  • Pale skin
  • Diarrhea
  • Black and, possibly, bloody stools
  • Seizures
  • Coma.
     
Because children cannot handle much iron, Stuart Prenatal vitamins should be stored out of the reach of children.
