Try to take TheraNatal every day, at the same time each day. Your dosage will depend on which TheraNatal product you are using. It is usually recommended to take your dose with food, as this vitamin can cause stomach upset. If you develop severe nausea or vomiting, your healthcare provider may recommend a different product for you.
An Introduction to Dosing With TheraNatalYour dose of TheraNatal® vitamins may vary, depending on the particular product you are taking. As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
What Is the Recommended TheraNatal Dosage?For women taking TheraNatal Core Nutrition, the usual recommended dosage is one vitamin and mineral tablet taken once a day.
The usual recommended dosage of TheraNatal Complete is one vitamin and mineral tablet (the same vitamin and mineral tablet found in TheraNatal Core Nutrition), one "Choline Plus" tablet (which contains extra choline, vitamin D, and vitamin B6), and one softgel (which contains docosahexaenoic acid, also known as DHA).
Women who take TheraNatal Lactation Support will take one vitamin and mineral tablet (specially designed for lactating women), one Choline Plus tablet, and one DHA softgel.
You should try to remember to take TheraNatal every day. However, it is okay if you occasionally forget to take a dose of your vitamins.
