I've been taking prenatals, dha, and probiotics for about a month or so. Well, the DHA off and on because it keeps making me so sick- it's not a food/no food issue as it's not making me feel nauseous...it's uh causing other symptoms. I'm at the point where I don't want to waste money trying a million different supplements but I wish I could take it! Anyone else get sick off DHA?

I was taking Spectrum Vegetarian DHA because I'm allergic to beef so I try to make sure I take vegetarian/vegan vitamins just in case.

I don't personally take DHA other than the prenatal that has it in it, and it doesn't make me sick. I am sorry that it is making you sick.

Thank you *kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

I am super limited to what prenatal I can take because of my beef allergy (most vitamins use beef gelatin). I tried taking DHA no less than 4 times and every single time it had me running to the bathroom lol. Oh well. I guess I'll just try to get my omega 3s in through diet- I have to admit- I did not use it with either of the first two and they turned out all right- I didn't hear about it with the first (must not have been popular yet) and the second I was so sick by the time my dr told me to use it I pretty much didn't have the stomach to try it (I always get sick off the fish oil version but just nausea bc of the fish taste).
