Can a muti-vitamin contribute to nausea? I am currently taking preg. vit. prescribed by my Dr. and diclectin for the extreme nausea 24/7, that I am experiencing.
Multivitamins can aggravate NVP, most often due to the iron content. That is probably why your physician prescribed you the pregvit -- because it is designed to make the iron more tolerable. However, consult your physician to ask if it would be wise to stop the pregvit for a few days to see if your NVP improves or stays the same.
