Vitamin side effect : Taking multiple vitamins when the body does not need them is not without side effects. A way to stop the GI side effects is to stop them all together & consult your doctor. Additives and some of the acidic vitamins can cause GI upset so can pill esophagitis. Drinking plenty of water is recommended when taking vitamin. Obtaining your vitamins through a varied diet is far more beneficial to health.
