Any multiple vitamin with a USP stamp of approval should be okay.

I take Forvia, it was developed for people with UC or Crohn's. While I no longer have UC I do believe that my body is just naturally depleted in certain vitamins. You can read more about the vitamin at www.forvia.com Your GI may have free samples too.

I have no problem taking pills. The Forvia does come in a chewable version but I take the regular.
