A 16-year-old female asked:

More info please: Exactly how did you overdose on vit. E? Taking a large amount at once generally causes little harm except diarrhea & cramps for a few hours, as the body can't absorb much at once. Taking 1500 iu or more for weeks can be harmful by thinning the blood too much, but stopping it and taking vit. K will take care of that.

Yes: It's probably a good idea. We don't know, exactly, what the "rda" of omega-3 fatty acids should be for nursing moms or babies or children, but we do know that these are important especially for eye and brain development. Good natural sources of omega-3s are oily fish (sardines, mackerel) and flax seed.

Is it safe to take more than one prenatal vitamin per day?

Why?: You should stick to your doctor's advice; i generally recommend avoiding more than 1 pnv pill daily mainly due to concerns about hypervitaminosis a - possible teratogen. You can take additional Folic Acid and calcium/iron as needed though, on top of the regular pnv dose.
