Prenatal Vitamins Helps Morning Sickness
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
If I have morning sickness an hour-or-so after I take my daily prenantal vitamin, is my baby still getting all that it needs?
All is still good: You only experience some nausea, not vomitting and so the vitamins are still being absorbed. Thus, baby should be fine. Take your vitamin with food may help the nausea a bit. Also, taking it later in the day may help a bit as well, as morning sickness is worse in the early morning. It should get better with time. Congrats on the pregnancy and good luck. ...Read more
Yes: For many women who experience morning sickness and/or nausea throughout the day, taking 25 mg of vitamin B6, 3 times a day will help. You can take this as tablets or there are also lollipops which contain vitamin B6, available at some pharmacies and children's stores. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How much, and when should vitamin B6 be taken for morning sickness? Night or morning? How many mg? Should it be taken with food, or doesn't matter?
10-25 mg 3x/day: Studies have shown benefits of taking 10-25 mg of vitamin b6 3x/day. Take it with food to reduce the risk of it causing stomach upset. B6 often helps & is worth trying but doesn't help everyone. Ginger tea, acupressure wrist bands & homeopathy are also worth trying.

I always take my prenatal vitamins within 15 mins of taking my dinner.Can that affect its absorption.I take Synthroid in morning, so hv these timings.
Yes it can: it is suggested by the american journal of clinical nutrition that prenatal vitamin absorption is best if the vitamins are taken 30-60 minutes before a meal. this is a very good question Marie. Just remember too that you should not take anything with your synthroid. Hope this helps ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
