Did/Does prenatals make anyone sick?

With my son I couldn't take them at all!!!! They made me sooooo sick. My doctor told me not to take them anymore, but I am wondering if my DS's lungs would be better if I had taken them he has asthma.

  • Yes, made me vomit within 1/2 an hour every time. Had to take two Flinstones. I don't think that caused your son's asthma, don't beat yourself up over it.

  • Not me, but I think they made my SIL sick. She was sick much of her pregnancy.

  • I couldn't take them. Doc prescrible calicum and iron also but I vomit it all out. Finally gave the prenatals to my MIL. They help skin and hair.

  • I was okay as long as I took them in the afternoon, with food. I tried taking them in the morning at first and they made me very sick. If you can't take the prenatal vitamin, can you at least tolerate a regular adult multi-vitamin?

  • I didn't take mine because they made me sick & then I took Flinstone chewables for as long as I could but they made me nauseated and my DS is fine.
