In brief: Lots!

He could get belly pain, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, painful urination, bloody urine, headache, flushing, lightheadedness, kidney stones, or even an allergic reaction (hives, facial swelling, etc.
). Also Ascorbic Acid (vitamin c) can interact or interfere with medications. Talk to his doctor about your concerns, and have him seen right away if he's having symptoms.
