Does anyone know of any easy-to-swallow prenatel vitamens?? The ones I was taking are now $50 a month. Too expensive for me since I am not evem pregnant. I've thought about getting some over the counter but not sure if those would still give me all the nutrients I would need...? I found Prenatel Plus vitamens on the internet - for a 2month supply its only $17.00! They seem to have all the nessecary nutrients. Anyone have any suggestions??

My doctor told me the over the counter prenatals are just as good as the precription ones. He said the only difference was the over the counter ones only have like 800 mcg instead of 1000 of the folic acid, so he suggested taking an extra folic acid vitamin that would give me the extra 200. He also told me there are some that have DHA with them and to take that also. Hope that helps!
