  • Nah just wait until tomorrow and try again. But that is coming from someone who never takes them so maybe another Mommies advice might be better.

  • Try again tomorrow. If you can't keep them down then my doctor said that Flinstones chewable vitamins are the same thing. Those are easier to keep down!

  • i agree with pp, next time eat something and in the middle of it take your vitamin so it's not hitting your empty stomach and something on top of it in there. that might help.

  • Make sure you eat before you take them.

  • I took them at night, so I would be asleep by the time they really affected my stomach. I still take my vitamins at night.

  • i wouldnt take it again either..i would just wait until tomorrow..what if you take it again and just throw up again..you can try taking them at night right before you get into bed..thats what i do because i was having really bad all day sickness and that was the only way it was going to stay down for me..

  • Take it in the middle of the afternoon or at dinner if you are tossing it in the morning. It is the iron in it that is making you puke.

    It doesn't have to be taken in the morning.
