  • It is 2. But do not take both at the same time bc your body will not absorb as many of the nutrients. It is best to take one in the morning and one at night.

    Also you could ask your Dr for samples of other ones that may help. I took flintstones with our son, but this time am taking OB complete DHA softgels which are small, the size of aleve, and dont make me sick.
