Can I take prenatal vitamins at night, without food? Anything else makes me sick.

Yes!: While it's ok to take vitamins at night without food. It's important to remember that certain vitamins are far soluble. That means that they will not be absorbed well if you are on an empty stomach. So, if you eat dinner a little earlier and then take your vitamins at bed time, it should be ok ...Read more

Trying to conceive taking prenatal vitamins at night and now can't sleep. Have to take at night due to synthroid (thyroxine). Is this normal reaction to prenatals?

Trying to conceive taking prenatal vitamins at night and now can't sleep. Have to take at night due to synthroid (thyroxine). Is this normal reaction to prenatals?

Don't take at night!: This isn't exactly "normal" but not unheard-of, as prenatal vits have B complex which can be stimulating & can cause insomnia. Just because you take synthroid (thyroxine) doesn't mean you have to take them at nite. One shouldn't take calcium at the same time but you can take it a few hours later- try the prenatal with lunch. You might need T3 too- see http://tinyurl.com/n4zmkro

M 8 weeks pregnant, is there any Problem If I take biotin 5000 in morning and nestabs abc prenatal vitamins capsule n soft gel capsule one at night?

M 8 weeks pregnant, is there any Problem If I take biotin 5000 in morning and nestabs abc prenatal vitamins capsule n soft gel capsule one at night?

Probably not: But biotin deficiency is rare and biotin readily available from dietary sources so that the need for the supplement is questionable, especially in such a large dose. There is really no data to indicate harm in taking it, but in pregnancy we like to err on the side of caution and avoid things that are not clearly indicated. ...Read more

I'm in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy and my morning sickness has subdued. At night I take prenatal vitamins an hour after eating & i always feel very nauseous & I end up vomiting. Why is this happening?

I'm in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy and my morning sickness has subdued. At night I take prenatal vitamins an hour after eating & i always feel very nauseous & I end up vomiting. Why is this happening?

Maybe iron.: Prenatal vitamins have more iron in them than regular vitamins which may be upsetting your stomach. You could taking the vitamin as half after breakfast and half after dinner to see if that helps. I'd also take it right after dinner (don't wait an hour). You could try a different brand (but they all have iron). Start with half tab twice a day with food and let me know if it helps -. ...Read more

Yes, in fact wise: I advise everyone take a quality multivitamin. Prenatals are a type of multivit. Which contain B vits and tend to be rich in iron which often helps anemia.

The 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. ...Read more

What happens if I don't take any prenatal vitamins?

Many things: If you are pregnant, the fetus gets its vitamins from you. If you have low levels, they will become even lower and you will have low energy levels. If the baby has low vitamin levels, it can lead to birth defects, especially low folate (folic acid) levels. This can lead to neural tube defects. Vitamins play a very complex role in the body. If your doctor recommends a pnv, I would take it. ...Read more

Is it wise to take prenatal vitamins and a b vitamin complex together?

Maybe: There is no harm in taking them together; however, b vitamins are commonly nauseating. Therefore, taking them together may increase the risk of nausea.
