Does anyone else feel sick after taking prenatals?

I was taking one a day and I felt groggy and a slight headache, all week. I thought I was just getting sick, but feeling that way, kept going on and on......then I forgot to take one and I felt sooooo much better! I don't know if I can handle them?! Maybe I should hold off taking them, unless/until I, actually, got pg?

I was having slight nausea from my half prenatal I was taking in the morning, today I decided to not take it in the morning and instead take it at night and see how that went. I don't feel nauseous today but will let you know how I feel tomorrow after taking one this evening at dinner. I read elsewhere on here were people were feeling sick. I went on a site for the Mayo clinic and they said that prenatal vitamins have iron in them that if you get too much can make you feel nauseous. Not sure if that was what was making me sick but certainy seems related to something in the prenatal. I don't plan to quit, can't waste this money but might just go get folic acid next time instead of prenatals.
