  • Sounds like they're causing heartburn.
    Switch to Flintstones chewables

  • I dont think its the prenatal vitamins, but probably more the food. What kind of pain is it? It could be heart burn, or indigestion pain. Talk to your doc about it at your next appt.

  • are you being serious about the flintstones? and its not heartburn my boss told me it was either the pills like a side effect or just stress like a panic attack...

  • hmm, well, I dont know then. My best guess is the food is causing it bc you said it happens after you eat. Look up online the side effects of the type you are taking, and see what it says. And then I would just talk to your doc. Good luck

  • yes,you can take 2 Flintstones instead. The pill might be getting stuck in your esophagus. Try taking it with a 12 oz glass of water
