Could i take a women's multivitamin and a prenatal vitamin in one day?

Could  i take a women's multivitamin and a prenatal vitamin in one day?

I wouldn't: Prenatal vitamins and multivitamins are similar (though not exactly the same), so there is no need to take both, and doing so might lead to nausea. If you accidently took both one day, i wouldn't worry, there is no real danger. ...Read more

Can i take a regular woman's vitamin like vita-vim for women and a folic acid supplement of 1000mcg while pregnant instead of a prenatal vitamin?

Can i take a regular woman's vitamin like vita-vim for women and a folic acid supplement of 1000mcg while pregnant instead of a prenatal vitamin?

Prenatal vitamins: Its probably ok to do this, but if the issue is the vitamin is too big, ask for a chewable. If it makes you nauseated ask for one that has something in it to help with the nausea or take it at night. In addition talk to your OB about your need of an essential fatty acid called dha, which is good for fetal brain and eye development. ...Read more

I take 1000 iu of vitamine d and omegared every day is that ok.

I take 1000 iu of vitamine d and omegared every day is that ok.

What does OK mean?: For most i see with low vit d, 1000 iu is a very low & rarely effective replacement of d3. Without checking vit d3 blood conc, who knows. Omega red widely marked but otc, low value, small homeopathic dose of epa+dha. From research available, epa the more valuable at doses of about 1, 000 mg/day to decrease rates of cv ds events a little. Yet low value vs. Good measured LDL & HDL particles, etc. ...Read more

How much vitamin  d3 should ou take a day? I have a bottle of vitamin  d3 5000iu in which I take two a day. One am one pm since I am low in d. Ok?

Vitamin D3: Usual dose is not more than 5000 units daily. I take that and my level is right in the middle of the normal range (50) Bear in mind that persons who have had gastric bypass surgery will absorb Vitamin D more readily and can become intoxicated with even 5000 units daily.
