Is it normal or even helpful for teenagers to still be eating flintstone vitamins?

Is it normal or even helpful for teenagers to still be eating flintstone vitamins?

Yes: It is normal and somewhat helpful for teenagers to take a daily multivitamin. Teens often don't get enough vitamin d or calcium in their diets. If they are choosy eaters and don't eat a variety of foods, they may be low in other vitamins.

I bought my 4yo flintstone vitamins that has iron in them. If my dr is not anemic is it still safe to give a vitamin with iron?

Safe: Generic multivitamins like Flintstones dosed for age group do not have excessive amounts of any one component so you should not be concerned you will "overdose" your child on iron or any other vitamin included in the formulation.

Pepto-Bismol : Pepto-bismol is categorized as a "class c" drug in pregnancy and should only be taken if specifically instructed to do so by your doctor. Only "class a and class b" medications are safe to take during pregnancy without a doctor's consent. 5 safe things your niece can do for her pregnancy associated nausea are: - ginger - such as ginger tea or ginger ale - saltine crackers - they absorb stomach acid and can help nausea - eat small amounts of food frequently - eating too much food at once can trigger vomiting - avoid odors that make you nauseous - acupressure bands - there is a pressure point on the wrist that can alleviate nausea that an acupressure wrist band can trigger. ...Read more
