Stuart Prenatal Warnings and Precautions

It is a good idea to talk to your healthcare provider about Stuart Prenatal warnings and precautions before taking the prenatal vitamins. Tell your healthcare provider if you have anemia or any allergies. Because Stuart Prenatal contains folic acid, it may mask certain types of anemia if too much is taken. Also, Stuart Prenatal contains iron, which may cause life-threatening problems if children accidentally consume too much of it.

  • Anemia
  • Any allergies, including allergies to medications, dyes, foods, or preservatives.
     
Also, make sure to tell your healthcare provider about any other medicines you are taking, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
 

Specific Precautions and Warnings for Stuart Prenatal

Some warnings and precautions to be aware of prior to taking Stuart Prenatal include the following:
 
  • Stuart Prenatal contains folic acid, which can mask certain types of anemia. This means that if you take enough folic acid (typically more than is found in Stuart Prenatal), 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 Stuart Prenatal.

 

  • Stuart Prenatal + DHA contains omega-3 fatty acids, including docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). DHA and EPA may increase the risk of bleeding when taken in high doses. This is not likely to be a problem with the usual recommended dose of Stuart Prenatal + DHA. However, you should discuss it with your healthcare provider if you have a bleeding disorder.
  •  
  • The DHA found in Stuart Prenatal + DHA is derived from fish oil and could theoretically contain heavy metals (like mercury) or cause problems for people with fish allergies. However, the fish oil is purified to reduce the risk of contaminants. Make sure your healthcare provider knows if you have a fish allergy. 

 

  • Be sure to keep Stuart Prenatal out of the reach of children. Stuart Prenatal contains iron, and it is easy for children to take too much iron (which can cause life-threatening problems).
     
  • Stuart Prenatal may interact with a few other medications (see Stuart Prenatal Drug Interactions).
     
  • Stuart Prenatal is safe and beneficial for women who are breastfeeding (see Stuart Prenatal and Breastfeeding).
