I've been on a couple of pre-natals but the one that I am taking now is a wholesome vitamin called BABY AND ME, from where I work. (It's a local health food grocery store). When I first read the bottle, it said I should take 4 a day. I was like WTF, 4? I asked the department manager and she said because it's a wholesome vitamin, all organic with fruits and vegetable derived ingredients, blah blah blah, than I should take 4 a day to get 100% of the folic acid from the prenatal.
Is anyone else taking a wholesome p/n vitamin?
Anyway. I have noticed that when I take them my stomach hurts but I try to take them with food so it's not on an empty stomach.
I've also heard from my mom you can take them at night too.
I don't think I would be taking a multi on top of it. I think that's a lot of extra vitamins for your body. You could always ask your doctor if you're really worried of the effects it has.
Hope you're feeling better!
