DESCRIPTION: PRENATE DHA ® is a prescription prenatal/postnatal multivitamin/mineral/essential fatty acid softgel. Each softgel is blue in color, opaque, and imprinted with “DHA” on one side and blank on the other.
PRENATE DHA ® contains fish oil and soy.
OTHER INGREDIENTS: Gelatin capsule (FD&C Blue #1, FD&C Red #3, gelatin, glycerin, purified water, sorbitol and titanium dioxide), soybean oil, soy lecithin, and white beeswax.
INDICATIONS: PRENATE DHA ® is a multivitamin/multimineral fatty acid dietary supplement indicated for use in improving the nutritional status of women throughout pregnancy and in the postnatal period for both lactating and nonlactating mothers. PRENATE DHA ® can also be beneficial in improving the nutritional status of women prior to conception.
CONTRAINDICATIONS: PRENATE DHA ® is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients.
WARNING: Ingestion of more than 3 grams of omega-3 fatty acids (such as DHA) per day has been shown to have potential antithrombotic effects, including an increased bleeding time and International Normalized Ratio (INR). Administration of omega-3 fatty acids should be avoided in patients taking anticoagulants and in those known to have an inherited or acquired predisposition to bleeding.
PRECAUTIONS: Folic acid alone is improper therapy in the treatment of pernicious anemia and other megaloblastic anemias where Vitamin B 12 is deficient. Folic acid in doses above 1.0 mg daily may obscure pernicious anemia in that hematologic remission can occur while neurological manifestations progress.
ADVERSE REACTIONS: Allergic sensitization has been reported following both oral and parenteral administration of folic acid.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: Before, during and/or after pregnancy, one softgel daily or as directed by a physician.
HOW SUPPLIED: Bottles of 30 softgels (75854-312-30).
