Patient will tell me that when they take multiple vitamins and suppliments during the day they may feel dizzy and tired. However, when they limit the suppliments to about 3 the side effect are diminshed. It should be sufficient to take 1of each: mvi, (multivitamin) b complex, omega tablets, +/- calcium/vitamin d, .
