Is nature bounty vitamin c plus zinc good to take

Patient: Is nature bounty vitamin c plus zinc good to take while pregnant or does it induces chances of miscarriage?

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.Zinc belongs to category A drugs in pregnancy, means no adv erse effects noted on fetus.Whereas vitamin C if taken in recommended amount, that is less than 120mg per day, may not harm the baby.More than that dose, it comes under category C drugs, means animal studies have demonstrated few adverse effects on fetus whereas sufficient human studies are lacking.So, better to maintain recommend dosage.Take care.
