Neevo DHA Warnings and Precautions

Neevo DHA could interact with other medications and can mask certain types of anemia, which means they may not show up on blood tests. Other Neevo DHA warnings and precautions apply to people with bleeding disorders and certain allergies. By being aware of these and other concerns, you can help ensure a safe treatment process.

What Should I Tell My Healthcare Provider Before Taking Neevo DHA?

You should talk with your healthcare provider prior to taking Neevo® DHA if you have:
  • Anemia
  • A bleeding disorder
  • Any allergies, including allergies to food, dyes, or preservatives.
Also, make sure to tell your healthcare provider about all other medicines you are taking, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.

Specific Precautions and Warnings for Neevo DHA

Some warnings and precautions to be aware of prior to taking Neevo DHA include the following:
  • This prenatal vitamin is usually considered safe for breastfeeding women (see Neevo DHA and Breastfeeding).
  • Neevo DHA can potentially interact with a few other medications (see Neevo DHA Drug Interactions).
  • Neevo DHA contains Metafolin®, a folate. Like all folates, Metafolin can mask certain types of anemia. This means that if you take enough of it, certain types of anemia may not show up on blood tests. This is not a problem with iron-deficiency anemia, which is common in pregnant women). If you have anemia, check with your healthcare provider before taking Neevo DHA.
  • High doses of omega-3 fatty acids (like DHA) can increase the risk of bleeding, although this is not expected to be a significant problem at the recommended Neevo DHA dosage. However, if you have a bleeding disorder, please discuss this with your healthcare provider before taking this prenatal vitamin.
