Hi!

I take Citrical and haven't had any side effects.

Have you spoken to your OB/GYN about this?

Re: Help!!! Need Some Info On Pre Nat Vits

yes i have spoken to the doc about it thats why she switched me to duet, and know the same muscle spams have started. I might be allergic to some of the ingrediants...so does that mean i can't take a prenatal vit? also i wonder why duet only has 1mg of folic acid....

sooo frustrated!!!!

My ob/gyn just gave me samples of duet and I was wondering the same thing about folic acid only beeing 1 mg. That does'nt make sense.

I am on natal care plus and they only have 1mg of folic acid too. That doesn't seem like enough.

There must be a common ingredient in the two of them that is causing the spasm. Have you noticed this before taking Citracal? Maybe you can have your doctor determine for you what this ingredient is.

You should be taking 400 micrograms of folic acid every day.

Re: Help!!! Need Some Info On Pre Nat Vits

That's interesting. I've had muscle cramps off and on in my legs since I started taking PNV early in the year. I was wondering if I might be getting too much of a certain vitamin or mineral (my diet is not too bad). Oh, and I'm taking the generic store brand kind. Let us know if you find out something!

I was told by my dr just to take folic acid and she gave me samplers of just folic acid nothing more in it. And I found out at GNC that they have just folic acid and its 400mcg I take a day which is one pill. So maybe you can just go to GNC or something and just get Folic Acid.
