Prescription Prenatals?

During my first pregnancy, I took the Walmart brand prenatals and my doctor was perfectly fine with that.

I got the RX ones because they were free for the first 3 months, and the Dr gave me a sample. They haven't bothered me, but I can't pay $30 a month for them..

I'll get the $12 ones at Target when these are gone. I compared the labels, and the RX ones don't have much in them anyway. I got Prenate Essentials.

I am on prenate essential with dha and they do not make me sick. The box says they are formulated to help with morning sickness. Although they do jack s*** to help with ms, they don't make me sicker than I already am!

I am on RX ones but that's because they are .67$ a month for them!!! Just an option though, have you tried taking them right before you go to bed? That way when they make you feel most yucky then you are asleep and sleep threw it...

I've only used OTC brands because my doctor has been fine with that. I did know someone who was having problems with RX prenatals (stomach problems). Her doctor told her to take them at night and that seemed to do the trick. Just an idea! Good luck!
