  • They are fine! I used GNC brand. They were smaller and easier to swallow. They are all the same. My Dr. said so too.

  • Mine are prescription and are only $10 for 100 pills. Take them with you or call your doctor and just have them double check and make sure they have the proper amounts of what you need for your pregnancy! Congrats!

  • My OB says they are all good, and not to waste money on expensive ones. The generic is fine.
