I throw up constantly 1 hr after taking my pre-natals? Is that enough time for them to take?

  • It should be but i had to stop taking them all together because they made me sick right after taking them everytime. Not saying thats what you should do.
    But yes i think thats enough time.

  • i think it takes less than thirty minutes for pills to get into your system so I think you good, have you tried drinking oj with them or does it even matter you'll get sick any way?

  • thats probably plenty of time for the to dissolve into the system. have you tried taking them right befor bed sometimes that helps. also try taking them with a glass of milk it gives you something to coat your tummy plus it will help them dissolve better. good luck. i your in your first trimester then it should go away here soon in your second.

  • Flintstone vitamins were all I could take when I was pregnant with my son. Get the regular vitamins, or the iron enriched if your doctor recommends that, and take two a day until birth or until finished nursing if you decide to go that route. Good luck!

  • i had trouble with the prenatal at first, but after i realized that i needed to take them on a full stomach, i have been taking them with no problems. it was sorta scary at first, because i didn't want to throw up on a full stomach, but it really does work. i would get SUPER nauseas if i hadn't eaten enough. try taking one right after lunch. lots of my friends suggested that too me and so did my OB. good luck!

  • i had chewable prenatals...but i couldnt keep them down so the doc let me take 2 childrens flinstones vitamins and then extra iron and folic acid in little pills on the side. I was instructed to take them with some club crackers maybe with some peanut butter on them and some worked...

  • I would try eating first and see if that helps. Vitamins are important, take what ever you can keep down.

  • That should be enough time. Try taking another brand of vitimine if this one makes you sick. I took the cheep wal-mart brand and they worked for me.
