Chewable Prenatals??

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Anyone know of an over the counter chewable prenatal vitamin? I can't swallow the big pills, have been on prescription chewables, but they are pretty expensive. Any suggestions??

I've heard of people taking Flintstones but I'm not sure what the concentrations of each vitamin are.

I compared the content of the Flintstones chewables with an OTC prenatal. Most of the vitamins were 1/2 the amount in the Flintstones. In my mind, one should be able to chew 2 Flintstones vitamins in one day to equal a prenatal. Don't take medical advice from me, though. And the Flintstones tasted way better when I was a kid than they do now.

Hey there Morgasaur So glad to see you in here! I just saw an ad for some in a pregnancy magazine at the doc (I have a sinus infection, yuck!). I'm not finding a link, but they were a commercially available sort of thing in a mainstream magazine. I did find in searching that there are some that can be prescribed too, so you might want to ask your OB.

I was told by my midwife chewable flintstones were okay, she didn't say 2, just that I could take them

Also I take Kirkman Perry Prenatal. I started because I was nursing my daughter who had many food allergies while I was taking them, they are small capsules, and you take 2 a day. You can order them online at kirkman and I think they were reasonably priced. I trust Kirkman because I was giving my daughter supplements from them when she was having her food issues and sensory issues, they make a lot of stuff for kids with Autism

My OB said to take 2 Flinstones chewables to replace your daily prenatal. I had to do it that way for a while. I am horrible at swallowing pills!

I took and am still taking (PP) Vitafusion Gummy Vitamins. They are delicious!

I take a drinkable prenatal vitamin called Isotonix Prenatal Multivitamin. It tastes like lemon-lime and goes down great, no gagging on nasty horse pills!
