Yes: You can take vit c supplements while pregnant or breastfeeding but you should not exceed recommended dosing. You will get more with eating lots of fruits and vegetables high in vitamin c. Our bodies absorb vitamins much better when presented in unprocessed foods. Plus if you are taking a multivitamin everyday that will also have vitamin C in it.

I take vitamin c and vitamin d together for a while. Is it bad to take them together?

Not at all: Most adults need 5-8000 iu of D3 a day during fall and winter months to get adequate D. It is possible to get D from sun in spring & summer if you get enough sun. D is best absorbed with or after a meal.

Can I take vitamin C for skin whitning?

Can I take vitamin C for skin whitning?

Don't do it: It won't work, and I also hope you won't try to lighten your skin in any other way. Topical agents will disfigure you. In the usa, judging a person by skin color is the height of ignorance, and this is becoming the norm worldwide. Stay fit to look good, learn useful skills to be effective at work and with others, and enjoy whatever genetic skin tone mother nature gave you. ...Read more

Can I take vitamin C while taking antibiotic?

Can I take vitamin C while taking antibiotic?

Yes: You don't say which antibiotic but I am unaware of any adverse interactions between vitamin c and any antibiotics.

"Glowing skin": Is evidence of overall health and orange juice without the fiber is not the same as eating the orange. Taking vitamin c on its own is not good because all the vitamins work as a a team and does not "take you off the hook" of eating an appropriate diet of natural food. ...Read more

Is it really important to take vitamin d and calcium supplement together? What if you do not is it serious? But I take vitamin c and vitamin d together is this okay?

Vitamins combined in: All foods, beware lots of untrue promotions.

Vit c, vit d: You don't say how much you have taken. Vitamin C is hard to overdose on, especially if you are sick or stressed. Side effects would include heartburn, reflux and diarrhea. Vit D however, is fat soluble and therefor, more prone to overdose. I have pts take 2-5000 IUs daily. Overdose Symptoms include increased calcium, kidney problems, weakness, nausea and vomiting. ...Read more
