prenatal vitamins

Anything to do instead of the prenatal vitamins? I hate taking pills and I always forget. I wish they had chewables. Thanx for any replies!

Read the label to the pre natel pills and maybe just find foods that are high in whats in the pills and substitute with that or try crushing them up and mixing with food or drink

where are you at? In the states there are chewable and gummy prenatals, so that maybe an option for you. I know a lot of people who use the flintstones chewables as well. I've also heard of a liquid prenatal as well, from some one on this site or the other one I also use.

They make gummy prenatal vitamins. You can also take 2 childrens chewable multivitamins instead. I alternate between the two because the regular prenatals make me sick.

I asked my Dr for a prescription for prenatals and when I gave it to the pharmacist I asked for chewables.

I take them at night because they made my stomach upset, but they don't bother me in the middle of the night...or maybe I just sleep through it.

Another option is taking 2 Flintstone vitamins with a folic acid. Hope one of these methods work.
