    Talk to your OB about it.

    You can get prenatal vitamins over the counter or if you need a certain formulation, the Dr can prescribe. There are some that have less iron to reduce morning sickness, others are liquid or chewable. Not all are created equal.

    This site will give you lots of info for what to look for in an OTC prenatal vitamin.

    Good luck.

    Usually the vitamins OBs prescribe are over the counter anyway

    you can buy pre natal vitamins at drug store, however i recommend that you let your doctor prescribe it just in case. Your doctor has your medical history so it would be safer to get it prescribed.

    you can ask the pharmacist to recommend a pre natal vitamin, then tell your doctor at your next visit what you are taking to see if he has any suggestions for something better.

    Yes you can buy them at the local drug store. You dont have to have them prescibed to buy them over the counter, but they are not as good as the prescibed ones.

  • you can get them at the pharmacy. the best thing to look for is it needs 800 mg folic acid.

    good luck.
