I was recently prescribe iron supplement due to anemia. I also have to keep taking my prenatal vitamins ( ofcourse!) The iron supplement goes together with vitamin c to help with the absorb iron better. My question is, in the morning when I take my prenatal vitamin, is it ok to take the other two as well? Today I did because if i take the iron and vitamin c and wait to take the prenatal I always end up forgetting to take it later. Please let me know, I don't think it should matter but not sure.

I don't think it should matter, its because the iron in the prenatal isnt enough that the doc wants you to take more. Just no milk 2hrs before or after you take the iron supplement.
