<p>My OB has told me that over the counter prenats are good enough because they don't contain enough folic acid.  Anyone else hear this?</p>

<p>Hmm, nope.  I agree, as long as they have 800 mg you're fine. You could always take an extra folic acid in addition.  I try to work a few in during the week just to be extra sure.</p>

<p>I asked my OB about prescription prenatals and he told me to just get some extra folic acid. I get mine at GNC.</p>
