Does anyone know of a prenatal vitamin to try that causes less nausea? I've been sick pretty much all the time for over a month now, and when I skipped the vitamins for two days in a row, I felt wonderful... of course, I'm taking them again because I know I need them!

Mine do the same thing, take them in the evenings right before you go to bed, that way they work through your system before you get up in the morning. If that doesnt work ask your doc for some with less iron in them, its the iron that is a lot of the times the culprit and hard to digest. Good Luck!

Prenatal are a good thing they are for those who don't eat properly and don't have enough vitamins and sometimes too much of a viatamin can be a overload and make you feel worse I take mine every other day, if you never been deficency of anything you probally can do the same.

I saw my doc yesterday and she said to start taking them every other day as I described my symtoms and that metallic taste in my mouth and she said the pills were causing it. She said every other day is perfectly safe and I do eat pretty good so not to worry. I skipped one last night and I had so much energy when I woke up and had an appet_te!!!! I don't feel sick at all! I think I'll take my next one at dinner time instead of before bed on an empty stomach too. They're so gross. I have the chewable kind so I really get the full taste. Yuck. I can't swollow horse pills though :(

I took vitamins that said to take on an empty stomach and they caused me to be sick......I found one at walmart that said take on a full stomach...i did not have any trouble....just have to find one that works...if it makes you sick..try another....but you need to take them..also consider more folic acid if you are in your 1st trimester

Take Duet-Dha prenatal vitamins, they are the newest ones on the market and help with body,brain and eye development. Drink a gla__s of orange juice and take them right beofr you go tosleep.

I get the same thing. Nausea with those prenatal vitamins. I don't take them everyday. I eat a bowl of Total cereal and mix it with All Bran cereal. Gives you all the vitamins you need and the All Bran provides the extra folic acid. It's good! and eases my queasy feeling.

I have been really sick and my doctor told me to take 2 flinstones a day that's equal to 1 prenatal and the taste is so much easier on your stomach

Yippee! I just got back from my appt - my doc says to stop taking the vitamins! I've lost weight from not being able to eat, so she says to try some regular chewables (like Flintstones) I'm so happy! I'm hoping I'll start feeling better now!

I experimented with taking the vitamins at different times during the day. I learned to take them right before I go to bed, and the "morning sickness" virtually dissapeared.

Question - does it matter which Flinstones you take? with iron/without? what about Winnie the Pooh vitamins, with iron, B-6 and Vitamin A?
