I was just prescribed pre-natal vitamins, called Advanced NatalCare. I cannot find them listed in the Drug reference guide. Is there a reason why? And are there many types of pre-natal vitamins?
Below is the Consumer Information for Advanced NatalCareÃ‚Â® from the ethex.com website

CONTRAINDICATIONS: This product is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients.
WARNING: Folic acid alone is improper therapy in the treatment of pernicious anemia and other megaloblastic anemias where vitamin B12 is deficient.
NOTICE: Contact with moisture may produce surface discoloration or erosion of the tablet.
PRECAUTIONS: Folic acid in doses above 0.1mg daily
may obscure pernicious anemia in that hematologic remission can occur while neurological manifestations progress.
PEDIATRIC USE: Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients have not been established.
GERIATRIC USE: Clinical studies on this product have not been performed in sufficient numbers of subjects aged 65 and over to determine whether elderly subjects respond differently from younger subjects. In general, dose selection for an elderly patient should be cautious, usually staring at the low end of the dosing range, reflecting the greater frequency of decreased hepatic, renal, or cardiac function, and of concomitant disease or other drug therapy.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: One tablet daily or
as directed by a physician.
