I was given instructions by my ped to give DD Poly-Vi-Sol daily for 6 months. At first I was weary, but DF and I talked about it. he prefers to do as the doc says, and I figured it's alright as long as it won't harm her in any way.
Here's the thing, my insurance won't cover it because you can get it over-the-counter. So the pharmacist found the over-the-counter off-brand for me and sold it to me for 8 bucks. I had him double check to make sure it was the same as the prescription would be, and he did, and said it was. But my ped told me that this "Poly-Vi-Sol" was just for vitamin D and Iron, whereas the supplement I have now ("Poly-Vitamin-Drops") has 100% of: A, D, E, C, B1, B2, Niacin, B6, AND Iron. Is this the same thing really? DOes prescription Poly-Vi-Sol have all this in it?
Also, I thought my ped said to give her a drop per day, but the box says to give a FULL DROPPER per day, which is a mL of fluid! Is that the correct dosage for the prescription? Can anyone who has given this vitamin supplement chime in on this?
