Gesticare DHA

What If I Take an Overdose?

It is not known exactly what to expect from an overdose with Gesticare DHA. It is reasonable to assume that side effects from too much of any of the active ingredients in it (particularly iron) might cause problems. If you think you or someone else may have taken too much of this vitamin, seek medical attention right away.

Storage Methods

Gesticare DHA should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children. This is particularly important, since Gesticare DHA contains iron. Iron poisoning is a leading cause of poisoning deaths in children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose of Gesticare DHA?

If you forget to take a Gesticare DHA dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
If you vomit after taking a dose, do not take another dose (it is difficult to tell how much of the drug was absorbed into your body). If you regularly vomit after taking a dose, talk with your healthcare provider.

Generic Availability

Technically, there are no generic equivalents for prenatal vitamins since tests are not performed to make sure that the vitamins act the same way in the body. However, "generic" prenatal vitamins may be available that have similar active ingredients as Gesticare DHA.
