    Prenatal and weight loss pill

    Is it okay to combine a prenatal and a weight loss pill? My wife wants to know. She's not breastfeeding or pregnant or anything, we're planning on becoming pregnant in a couple of months and she's taking a prenatal vitamin in advance. We just want to make sure nothing will conflict. We're asking the doctor, too, of course, but I was curious if any other woman out there has combined the two and their experience. Thanks. :)

    I think if you're intention is to have a baby, don't take diet pills, just like you should cut out drinking, smoking and any other thing that you don't want your unborn baby to come into contact with. If your wife does need to lose a lot of weight to be healthier, maybe hold off having a baby for a bit or talk to your doctor about options.

    They might not conflict, but I personally don't think it's a good idea to go on any diet pill (prescription or over the counter) if your intention is to start a family soon (which it should be if your wife is already taking a prenatal vitamin). If losing weight is really important before she becomes pregnant (e.g. health reasons) She should discuss her options and her intentions with her doctor and they can tell her what the best course of action is to take.

    I feel the same way about it. As long as your wife is not actively becoming pregnant at this point, it should be okay if nothing conflicts (of course run it by your doctor first). But, at this point, it would also be good for her to find ways to reach her weight loss goals without a pill, especially if you want to get pregnant.

    As long as nothing conflicts, it should be fine to combine them. A prenatal vitamin is just vitamins and some minerals after all. That said, once you actually start full-on trying to have a baby, I personally would suggest getting off the diet pills. The best course of action of course, is to always consult with your healthcare provider about it.
