  • Take it before bed with a handful of pretzels.

  • yes of course. there is a lot of iron in them. mine made me so ill. i went down to half and i was still miserable. then my doctor told me to at least take 2 flintstone chewables each day. folic acid is very important during pregnancy that is why vitamins are so important. talk to your doctor about better advice.

  • Make sure you take them at night before you go to bed. I made the mistake of taking one in the morning and felt like crap the next day.Hope that helps you...Good luck!

  • I got chewable ones, and on the days I felt really bad I used the kids gummy vitamins. My aunt was very allergic to the first prenatals she was given, maybe try another one?

  • yes a lot of girls tend to throw up every time my doctor would change mine to smaller ones it was still bad for me and i stop drinking them like n the fourth month i know girls that stoped drinking them before and my baby is perfectly healthy as well as the other girls but the best advice is talk 2 ur doctor

  • I wanted to tell you that I could not take prenatal pills at all. They made me so sick. And just remember that women have been having babies for thousands of years and I can promise you that if you can't take your pills your baby is going to be just fine. My little boy is very happy and health!!

  • I bought some that were half the size and they were easier to swallow, but they made me really queasy. I took a half dose. Flintstones vitamins are a good idea, or gummies.
