Unsafe vitamins can be in case you are taking dietary supplements or mineral-vitamin complexes with high vitamin C content - you do not need an excess of ascorbic acid.
In any case, the intake of Ascorutine by a pregnant woman should be carried out under the supervision of the lead doctor and only in the dose and method prescribed by him. After all, the drug is easily absorbed into the blood and quickly spread throughout the body. True, its excess and metabolic products are excreted with bile and urine.
Ascorutin is not recommended to be washed down with mineral water, since alkali reduces the digestibility of vitamin C. The tablet should be taken with a sufficient amount of clean water immediately after eating.
