Are any of the over the counter prenatals as good as the prescribed ones?

I am running low and would like to get more. I'm breastfeeding and plan on taking these for the rest of my baby making years. I want them to be good quality and decent price.

  • I take a store brand women's daily multi, it's almost identical to the prescription prenatals.

  • I take the Walgreens brand ones. I brought them in to my OB and they said they have everything in them that they would prescribe and told me to go ahead and take them.
