Flintstones Vitamins?


My stomach is very sensitive & I'm worried about taking prenatals. Are Flintstones really a safe substitute? If so, which ones & how many?

I take the flinstones ones but they only have half the folic acid you need so I take another 400mcg of folic acid, my dr. said it was fine.

i don't know about the flinstone vitamins but i just wanted to mention the prenatals i am taking. i am taking pregvit prenatals. they are split up into 2 pills a day, so there is less to cause a tummyache.

good luck finding something that won't make you sick

The sour ones look so good! Although I think that's just because I've been craving anything sour..

I was at the store the other day reading the labels of both the gummies & regulars. Regular has 400mcg of Folic Acid while the gummies have 200mcg. I read you're supposed to have a minimum of 600mcg of FA but I don't want to take 2 of the regulars & end up OD'ing on the other vitamins that are in there!! (Wait... is that even possible?! Lol!)

I take a flintstone with a folic acid supplement and a chewable dha. I got the folic and dha from GNC the folic os so tiny I just chew it with the flintstone. The DHA make me ill so I take it later in the day alone.

Just add a folic acid pill to them. Mine I am suppose to swallow but it melts on contact so I just chew it with the other vitamin.


Also I think the gummies might not have iron or be low on them. I looked at my SIL at christmas but I honestly forgot already.

I use to take VitaFusion Prenatal Gummies--at least I think thats the name. I've gotten them from Target and Walgreens. I took them to my dr appt on Tuesday and he said they were fine. The only thing is they don't have any iron. None of the gummy prenatals did that I saw. I need iron and can't swallow pills, so I changed to Belly Bar Chewable Prenatals. They have everything and doc said those are good too.

Did they make you sick at all? I wonder if you can take those along with an iron supplement...?
