Specific Precautions and Warnings for NataChewSome of the warnings and precautions to be aware of prior to taking NataChew include the following:
- Like all prenatal vitamins, NataChew contains folic acid. Folic acid can mask certain types of anemia, which 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 NataChew.
- Because NataChew contains iron, be sure to keep it out of the reach of children. Iron poisoning can be very dangerous, especially in young children.
- NataChew is usually considered safe (and even beneficial) for women who are breastfeeding (see NataChew and Breastfeeding).
- NataChew can potentially interact with a few other medications (see NataChew Drug Interactions).
