Can taking geritol liquid stop you from getting a period ?

Not likely: I've not heard of anyone taking geritol liquid to stop a period. I'm assuming you are talking about the vitamin supplement, that is advertised for seniors. If you are sexually active consider checking a pregnancy test if you missed your period. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. Geritol is a brand of multivitamin which has extra iron and is manufactured by glaxo-smith-kline. Iron content is between 9.5 mg and 16 mg in tablets and liquid has 18 mg.

I have to start geritol the day of your cycle or can you start before? What do I do?

Ask your doctor: Truthfully, it really doesn't matter. We used to associate the elderly w/Geritol. But presumably you're female (you didn't describe your gender although you mentioned your cycle) so you probably lose a bit of iron w/your menses, which is where Geritol comes in. Realistically, if that's the case, it really doesn't matter when you start, since we don't cycle vitamins as much as take them daily. ...Read more

Does geritol help gain weight? Trying too gain a few pounds too be at my right weight.

Does geritol help gain weight? Trying too gain a few pounds too be at my right weight.

Not really: Geritol is a multi-vitamin supplement and as such has minimal caloric value. A better bet would be to add an extra 500 calories of healthy food to your diet on a daily basis. This would increase your weight by about a pound a week if everything else was kept stable. Taking the vitamin alone will not stimulate weight gain. ...Read more

I'm taking geritol and I'm bleeding. What is this?

From where?: From where are you bleeding? Nose? Gums? Rectum? Penis or vagina (you didn't state gender)? Geritol is a brand of vitamins (http://www.geritol.com/) marketed towards elderly when I was growing up. Regardless, vitamins shouldn't make you bleed.
