So my Mom claims that taking my daily vitamin/calcium pill and my 6MP together could counteract each other. She thinks if I take them separate during the day would be better. I've never done it.. had the same ways of doing it forever. Do you think this is true? Do you take them separate throughout the day?

Definetly ask your doctor.  If you know a dietician he/she would be even better to ask.  Also you might look it up on the internet.  MAybe a phrase such as drug and nutrient interaction.

You could ask a pharmacist too.

But as far as I know, there are no known issues taking 6MP and vitamins at the same time.
