Brief Answer:
Cdense not needed

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.

FOL XT and CPINK M are multivitamins which are prescribed in pregnancy.
However, CDENSE is calcium orotate which is not at all indicated in pregnancy.

I will suggest you to inquire about CDENSE and the reason for starting this tablet.

Hope you found the answer helpful. Feel free to ask further.

Brief Answer:
safety of calcium orotate is not known in pregnancy

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
Calcium supplementation is needed in pregnancy.
However, the safety of calcium orotate is not known in pregnancy and is not mentioned by US FDA.
It is advised to take tablets containing calcium carbonate, calcium citrate malate for supplementation in pregnancy.
These are considered safe in pregnancy.
