i have just had my 28 wk bloods back and am marginally anaemic. the hospital prescribed me pregaday. i see they have folic acid in as well - does this mean i cant take them with my usual prenacare tablets,as i'll get double the dose of folic acid? am loathe to stop the pregnacre becaus emy diet is not always up to scratch. help, i'm a bit confused!

I took spatone when was in your situation and carried on taking my pregnacare. As the pregnancy progressed, I had to also take gentle iron....but the spatone did the job for a good 5 weeks.

is spatone the sachet one? can you have it in apple juice to make it less bleurgh?

Yup - i mixed it with OJ. Drinking iron with vit c aids absorption.

I took Spatone in OJ as well. Great stuff- no stomach ache, which tablets always give me.
