I take pre-natal vitamins that I buy online from Puritan's Pride; they are the "house" brand. There are all kinds of multi-vitamins to take. Are you deficient in anything? I buy almost all my supplements from Puritan's Pride because they run specials for buy one, get one free, or buy two, get three free.

I take One a Day Essential just because it is a lot smaller of a pill.  Reg mulits I have a really hard time swallowing.

I definitely have to have it with milk or (my favorite) yogurt. I try to take most of my pills with either milk or yogurt because I notice I have more trouble swallowing in recent months. Hmm... fibro related? I wouldn't be surprised.

I take One-A-Day for women. I also take an iron supplement because my iron is always low.

You can also ask your pharmacist to recommend something for your age and condition.

Definately ask the pharmacist or better yet your doctor.  As we age (my doctor is always saying that) our bodies needs change.  After menopause I had to take senior women's vitamins because normally your iron requirements change and I had to add extra calcium to prevent osteo, then you need sufficient vitamin D for the calcium to work.  So anyway age and health status has alot to do with supplemental vitamin needs. 

Good Luck

The best multi I've found to date is called Radiance. Some drug stores up here (New York) carry it. It has the usual vitimans and minerals but also has echinechia, red wine extract, ginko baloba and a good range of beneficial herbs.

Trader Joe's sells an adult chewable multi. It's good for those that have trouble swallowing or absorbing.
