Dangerous PremesisRx Overdose EffectsAn overdose on any multivitamin is likely to cause bothersome symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation. Fortunately, these are not usually life-threatening problems. Unlike most other prenatal vitamins, PremesisRx does not contain iron, and is, therefore, less likely to cause serious problems in the case of an overdose.
Treatment for a PremesisRx OverdoseThe treatment for a PremesisRx overdose will vary. If the overdose was recent, a healthcare provider may use certain medicines or place a tube into the stomach to "pump the stomach."

- Fluids through an intravenous line (IV), if necessary
- Other treatments based on the complications that occur.
