Gesticare DHA Uses

Gesticare DHA Use in Children, Men, or the Elderly

Gesticare DHA is usually not recommended for use in children, men, or the elderly. Sometimes, prenatal vitamins are prescribed in place of regular vitamins in order to get them covered by insurance or Medicaid, although many insurance companies have caught on to this practice and now restrict coverage to pregnant women only. Many prenatal vitamins contain iron in doses that are too high for children.

Off-Label Uses for Gesticare DHA

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Gesticare DHA for something other than the conditions discussed in this article. People often wonder if taking prenatal vitamins is helpful for hair growth.
