Is okay to use Flinstones plus immunity support while pregnant?

I picked up the wrong kind, I know that you are supposed to use flinstone complete vitamins but I was just wondering if I was able to take these just until I get on my prenatal vitmins? How many do you take? I don't know if these will hurt my baby, and I don't want anything to happen.

  • I used Flintstones vitamins all through my pregnancy b/c I couldn't hold down the prenatal vitamins. It's okay.

  • thanks~ I use prenatal vitamins also.. But I just found out we were pregnant again and I just wanted to get the extra boost of vitamins befor I go to the doctors and get put on the "prenatals", I called my pharmacist and they told me it was completely fine to use these until I go and see my doctor! But thanks for the help!!

  • Why take extra vitamins? If you are getting too many, your body just flushes them out and you'll be waisting your money. Also, if I were you, I'd take ALL NATURAL and/or ORGANIC vitamins. What's the point in a vitamin that has artificial flavors/colors and in a lot of cases, aspartame? I know some Flintstone vits have that.

  • No I am currently NOT taking prenatal vitamins until I go to my doctors,Please read my WHOLE response.. Not just partially! I just wanted to take the flinstones until I can see my doctor... ONLY TAKING the flistone vitamins right now... NO OTHER vitamins... once I GO to the DOCTORS I will stop taking the flinstones and go on my prenatals!!

  • Okay- so any kind of flinestones are SAFE! Do not take organic vitamins while pregnant!! If you are in to that, then ask your OB. I just saw that someone said that... Anyways, OB's recommend flinestones for a reason! They will be fine until you get your vitamins, it's a good idea! They dont have enough floic acid, so eat your veggies :0)

  • With my son I used the Flintstones Chewable because the one my Doc put my on made me Sick; Severe Cramping  from Gas and so he put me on another and that made me have Severe Nausea. With my Daughter I was prescribed Stuart Prenatal and Iron 50mg. There actually the same as Prenatals i you look closely at both Bottles.

  • Ash - Don't take organic vits? Why? It just means it's all good stuff. No pesticides, artificial colors, artificial flavors, chemicals.
