Hi docs, do you think it's bad to take 5 different vitamins at once?

Vitamins: A good multivitamin is a good idea. It's like an insurance policy for when we don't eat right, don't sleep well, or are especially stressed. Go to a good store or get some guidance because the popular brands are typically very week and not helpful.

I take 6 different vitamins daily. Is that bad? Or is it too much? I feel like I need them all (vitamin c, e, b12, b-complex, glucosamine, &multivitamins)

I take 6 different vitamins daily. Is that bad? Or is it too much? I feel like I need them all (vitamin c, e, b12, b-complex, glucosamine, &multivitamins)

Maybe: A good multivitamin will include c, e, b12, and b-complex so you are probably taking a lot of the same (and spending a lot of money... Vitamins are not cheap!). Glucosamine is good but you are too young to need it. If you feel like you need them, I would spend on a good multivitamin that has all that you need. I personally prefer to get vitamins from fresh foods as they are better absorbed. ...Read more

I take 9 tablets (4 different vitamins from my doctor) in the morning as I eat breakfast but feel ill in my stomach afterwards, how do I stop that?

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. ...Read more

I am taking 7 different medicines and was wondering if I can continue to take Natures Code Vitamins for women 50 and over?

Yes, in fact...: Many medications (including yours) increase our need for vitamins so it can be argued the more meds you're on the more vitamins you need. I have much more concern about interactions between these meds than them interacting with vits. Anyone on statins should take CoQ10. It is hazardous to take Omeprazole for long periods.
