I stopped taking my prenatal vitamins, because I am trying to stop breastfeeding, and I find when I take them, I develop more milk. But now I am extremely tired. Is this an effect of not taking prenatals????
I have stopped and can barely get up before 11.

  • Maybe you need the iron in them?

  • I didn't have this side effect when I stopped taking the prenatal vitamins, but then again, everyone's body reacts differently. Could it also be you are still getting up in the middle of the night, taking care of an infant (maybe another child/children), plus housechores, etc? Try going to bed earlier and a very strong cup of expresso in the morning.

  • It is very possible that this is due to not taking the vitamins anymore. Talk to your doctor

  • Prenatals are just vitamins. It could be that you need those extra vitamins and just keep taking a vitamin. It won't hurt.
