Can elevit with iodine stop u from eating and make u sick?

Not likely: What is the reason that you take Elevit for? Are you pregnant or trying to become pregnant? No matter what the reason is would suggest you stop taking it for few days. If still feeling sick, seek medical attention.

Certainly: It is best to start taking prenatal vitamins even before pregnancy, then to continue them throughout the pregnancy. But it is never to late and it is always safe to take prenatal vitamins during pregnancy.

I just found out that I'm pregnant and the pharmacist told me to take fefol iron and folate (folic acid) as well as elevit pregnancy multivitamins. Is this ok?

I just found out that I'm pregnant and the pharmacist told me to take fefol iron and folate (folic acid) as well as elevit pregnancy multivitamins. Is this ok?

No: Multivitamins are fine. Folic acid is ok as well, although, too late to take it now as the neural tube had started developing and the most benefit would have been if you took it before you got pregnant and during the time of conception. Iron - no need if you are not anemic.

Best prenatal vitamins to take?

Best prenatal vitamins to take?

Ideally with 5-MTHF: Most prenatals are fairly similar but there's a subtle yet important difference. About 30% of people can't convert Folic Acid to its active form, l-5-mthf, so to be on the safe side it's best to take one with that form like prenatal nutrients (pure encapsulations), basic prenatal (thorne) or prenatal pro (designs for health). These also have biotin, which is important, & natural e, not synthetic.

Many reasons.: The most important ingredient in prenatal vitamin formulations is folic acid, a b-complex agent that has been shown to prevent birth defects (mainlyopen neural tube defects, heart anomalies and preterm birth) and calcium.Vitamin d to assure proper fetal bone growth and avoid maternal bone loss.

What prenatal vitamins should be taken?

What prenatal vitamins should be taken?

One your body likes: There are many different prenatal vitamins. They have certain things in common but several differences. I would avoid one with artificial colors or flavors. Ginger is often added to prenatals because of its ability to treat nausea. It is safe. Some contain a lot of calcium which is constipating. It is best to get calcium from healthy unprocessed food together with other minerals
