Nestabs DHA Dosage

Taking Nestabs DHA once a day during pregnancy or while breastfeeding can help provide important nutrients for you and your baby. This prescription prenatal vitamin comes as a tablet, which contains the minerals and vitamins, and a softgel capsule, which contains the omega-3 fatty acids. Try to take your dose of Nestabs DHA at the same time each day.

An Introduction to Dosing With Nestabs DHA

There is only one standard recommended dosage for Nestabs® DHA. As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.

What Is the Recommended Nestabs DHA Dosage?

The usual recommended Nestabs DHA dosage is one tablet and one softgel capsule taken once a day. You can take the tablet and capsule at the same time or at different times.
While you should try to take your prenatal vitamins every day, there is no need to worry too much if you occasionally miss a dose. If you find you are frequently forgetting doses, talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist about strategies to help you remember.

General Information on Taking Nestabs DHA

Some considerations to keep in mind while taking this prenatal vitamin include the following:
  • This medication comes in the form of a tablet (which provides the vitamins and minerals) and a softgel capsule (which provides the DHA and EPA). It is normally taken by mouth once a day.
  • You can take it with or without food. Taking your tablet on an empty stomach may help improve the absorption of the iron in the vitamin, but most women find taking it with food can help reduce stomach upset.
  • You can take Nestabs DHA any time of the day. However, try to take your dose at about the same time every day.
  • Let your healthcare provider know if you experience significant nausea or vomiting. He or she may have some useful suggestions, or may be able to recommend a different prenatal vitamin.
  • For the vitamin to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or Nestabs DHA dosing in general, please talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
