I'm currently taking a daily prenatal vitamin. Is it ok to also take a daily biotin supplement? Thank you!

I'm currently taking a daily prenatal vitamin. Is it ok to also take a daily biotin supplement? Thank you!

So I don't really: know if you are taking prenatal vitamins in case you get pregnant or actually are pregnant. Biotin would be considered safe in pregnancy, but it is best to consult your prenatal physician/midwife before adding any supplement. Biotin/B7 can be found in cauliflower, yeast, egg yolk, avocado, raspberries, salmon, etc--the best sources. Some women feel biotin may prevent postpartum hair loss. ...Read more

I take reg prenatal vitamins but I am vitamin d2 def(13.2) is it safe to take a prenatal vitamin and a over-the-counter vitamin d supplement?

Vitamin d : Yes - it is safe to take a prenatal vitamin and an over the counter vitamin d supplement. You want to make sure, though, that the supplement has a USP stamp on it. That stands for United States pharmacopoiea and ensures that the amount of vitamin d that is supposed to be in a tablet is really in it. ...Read more

Hi..im 28 weeks pregnant. Is it safe to take 1,000mg of vitaminc and 400iu vitamin E daily?together with a prenatal vitamin.

Vitamin Supplements: The prenatal vitamin contains every vitamin and mineral supplement that you and your baby should need. I would not recommend adding additional vitamin supplements without first checking with your OB provider. I have seen patients develop kidney stones on 1 gram daily doses of vitamin C. Vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin that can accumulate and affect blood clotting. Please check with your OB. ...Read more

Can i take fenugreek and a prenatal vitamin together?

Can i take fenugreek and a prenatal vitamin together?

Yes unless pregnant: It is safe to take fenugreek and a prenatal vitamin. Fenugreek has many benefits. Due to estrogen-like properties it can enhance lactation, reduce menstrual cramps and reduce menopausal symptoms but it is advised to not use fenugreek while pregnant as it might increase risk of miscarriage.

Can i take my prenatal vitamin together with meal? as per doc advice,take it before or 1or 2 hour after meal.

Empty stomach best: Prenatal vitamins are best absorbed - or work the best if taken on an empty stomach. You get more of the medication in your body that way. However, if it is causing severe stomach discomfort you can take it with a small snack, I would try to avoid taking it with a full meal. But you can if the small snack is not enough to reduce any stomach pain. ...Read more

Can I have a vitamin d deficiency even though i take a prenatal vitamin (not pregnant) everyday that has 100% of daily value? Bone pain. I have itp.

Think ITP: Think like a doctor: you have a diagnosis -- itp. Before you look for another cause of your "bone" (leg?) pain, try to connect it with your established diagnosis. Itp is a pro-clotting disorder; could your "bone" pain be in fact due to a blood clot in a deep vein? This – but not vitamin d deficiency – would be my first (and major) concern. ...Read more
