Gesticare DHA

When and How to Take This Supplement

Some general considerations for when and how to take this prenatal vitamin include the following:
  • Each dose of Gesticare DHA consists of one tablet (which contains the vitamins and minerals) and one capsule (which contains the DHA). It is taken once a day.
  • You can take this prenatal vitamin with food or on an empty stomach. The iron may be better absorbed on an empty stomach, but most women find that taking prenatal vitamins with a little food usually helps with stomach upset.
  • You can take Gesticare DHA at any time of the day, but try to take it at the same time each day. You can take the capsule and tablet at different times of the day, if you desire.
  • Let your healthcare provider know if you have trouble keeping Gesticare DHA down or if it causes significant nausea or other intolerable side effects. Your healthcare provider may have some useful suggestions or may suggest trying a different prenatal vitamin.
  • Although occasional missed doses are not of significant concern, it is important to try to take your prenatal vitamin regularly throughout pregnancy.  

Dosing Information
