Q. Can I start taking TheraNatal One before I am pregnant?
A. Yes. TheraNatal One can be taken while trying to conceive. While the 27 mg of iron and 300 mg of DHA in TheraNatal One are most important once you are already pregnant (in particular, for the second and third trimesters), it is safe to take these amounts while you are trying to conceive.
Q. Can I continue taking TheraNatal One after pregnancy?
You can, however, it is not recommended for long-term use after pregnancy. In general, women can finish taking any remaining TheraNatal One softgels after pregnancy.
If you are planning to breastfeed, TheraNatal Lactation Complete is specifically formulated to meet your unique nutrients needs while breastfeeding. If you will be breastfeeding for at least several months, it is better to switch to TheraNatal Lactation Complete while breastfeeding instead of continuing with TheraNatal One. If you are NOT planning to breastfeed, you can switch to a women's multivitamin like Essentia once you finish taking TheraNatal One.
Q. What is the source of DHA in TheraNatal One?
TheraNatal One contains 300 mg of DHA from pharmaceutical-grade omega-3 fish oil that has met the Marine Stewardship Council's (MSC) standard for sustainability. This high-quality fish oil is molecularly distilled and highly purified. Every batch of DHA in TheraNatal One is tested for freedom from contaminants such as mercury, lead, and PCBs by the International Fish Oil Standards (IFOS) Program. The DHA in TheraNatal One has received the highest rating of 5 stars from IFOS, which indicates exceptional quality, purity, and safety.
If you are allergic to fish, the highly purified fish oil may not be safe for you and you should consult your allergist.
Q: Can I take TheraNatal One if I'm allergic to shellfish?
Yes. There is no shellfish in TheraNatal One. If you have reacted to radiocontrast material or antiseptics which contain iodine, you may still be able to safely take TheraNatal One even though it contains iodine. These reactions are commonly confused with sensitivity to iodine or shellfish, though studies have shown that they are not related.
Q. Can I take other nutritional supplements along with TheraNatal One?
Yes. Certain other supplements can be taken along with TheraNatal One (such as single-nutrient supplements like calcium). However, do not take any type of multivitamin or other prenatal while taking TheraNatal One.
Q. Does TheraNatal One interact with any prescription medications or other supplements?
As with any dietary supplement, it is recommended you discuss with your pharmacist and or healthcare team to clarify whether TheraNatal One can be taken along with your medications.
Medications that are changed by the liver Cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP34) substrates - CYP34 are important enzymes in your body, mainly found in the liver to break down medications in the body. Vitamin D may increase how quickly the liver breaks down some medications. Taking TheraNatal One, which contains 75 mcg (3,000 IU) vitamin D, along with some medications may decrease the effectiveness of some medications. Before taking TheraNatal One, talk to your healthcare provider to determine if you are taking medications that are changed by the liver, for example lovastatin, clarithromycin, estrogens, and others.
TheraNatal One may also affect the absorption of certain prescription medications as follows:
Antibiotics: Iron (in TheraNatal One) can bind to antibiotics in the stomach and reduce their absorption and effectiveness. Depending on the antibiotic prescribed, you may need to separate taking any multivitamins from antibiotics by at least 2 to possibly 6 hours or discontinue taking a multivitamin while taking the antibiotic. Please discuss with your pharmacist and healthcare team to determine if you should stop taking your multivitamin for a short period of time.
- • Penicillamine (Cuprimine, Depen) – Separate by 2 hours
- • Cephalexin (Keflex) – Separate by 3 hours
- • Tetracycline antibiotics (doxycycline, minocycline, demeclocycline)- Separate by 4 hours
- • Ciprofloxacin (Cipro), gemifloxacin (Factive), levofloxacin (Levaquin), Moxifloxacin (Avelox) – Separate by 6 hours
Antihypertensive drugs (captopril (Capoten), enalapril (Vasotec), losartan (Cozaar), valsartan (Diovan), diltiazem (Cardizem), amlodipine (Norvasc), hydrochlorothiazide (HydroDIURIL), furosemide (Lasix), and many others): Take TheraNatal One which contains DHA and EPA from fish oil with medications that lower blood pressure may increase the effects of these medications and may lower blood pressure even more. Take separate by at least 2 hours.
Antiplatelet drugs (aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), dalteparin (Fragmin), dipyridamole (Persantine), enoxaparin (Lovenox), heparin, ticlopidine (Ticlid), and warfarin (Coumadin)): These medications prevent blood clots by slowing blood clotting. Taking TheraNatal One which contains DHA and EPA from fish oil which along with these medications may increase the risk of bleeding. However, most research shows that fish oil does not increase bleeding. Until more is known, be watchful if combining with medications that slow blood clotting.
Atorvastatin (Lipitor) - This medication helps control cholesterol levels in the body. Taking it with TheraNatal One, which contains 75 mcg (3,000 IU) of vitamin D, may decrease the amount of atorvastatin absorbed by the body. Separate by a minimum of 2 hours.
Oral Bisphosphonates (i.e., alendronate (Fosamax), etidronate (Didronel), risedronate (Actonel), ibandronate (Boniva), tiludronate (Skelid)) – These medications alter bone formation and breakdown in the body, slowing down bone loss and helping to prevent bone fractures. Taking iron (in TheraNatal One) along these medications can decrease how much bisphosphate the body absorbs. Separate by 2 hours.
Thiazide diuretics (aka: water pills) – These medications are used to treat high blood pressure, congestive heart failure as well as the accumulation of fluid and swelling (edema) in the body. These medications also increase the amount of calcium in the body. Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium. Taking TheraNatal One, which contains 75 mcg (3,000 IU) vitamin D, along with these medications may cause too much calcium in the body.
Thyroid hormone (levothyroxine, Synthroid) - This medication is used to treat an underactive thyroid gland. Iron (in TheraNatal One) can reduce absorption of these thyroid hormone medications. Separate by at least 4 hours.
