    Default Vitamins

    I am taking a vitamin that I consider pretty nutritionally complete...but it makes me sick! I get nausea shortly after taking it and I am taking it with food. I think it is because I don't tolerate the iron in it very well.

    I have plenty of Zofran on hand but I hate taking it because it causes constipation. Anyone else suffering?

    Here is what I take:

    I take gummy vitamins, target has a gummy prenatal that I like. It doesn't have iron so I'm not sure how they get away with calling it a prenatal, but for me it's better than nothing. If it weren't for the gummy vitamins I wouldn't take vitamins at all. They make me sick too!

    Do you take it at night? That helped me.

    I thought about it but it is an energy vitamin and I'm afraid it will keep me awake!

    It shouldn't! B vitamins help with energy, but they won't keep you up. Unless your vitamin has caffeine or some other stimulant it won't interfere with sleep.

    I've been taking flintsone gummies. Last pregnancy those are the only ones I wouldn't throw up.

    I had the same problem with prenatals last time. Taking it at night really helped.

    I take mine at night so they don't interfere with my thyroid meds. I just have the plain old prenatals with a yellow cap and clear bottle. So far no ill effects from the iron. LOL
