funny you mention vitamins because I recently switched brands, & find I digest the new ones far better! I used to take County Life Daily Multi-Sorb Sotfgels- a vitamin specifically recommended for IBD. And I'd be burping up that gross vitamin taste, & feeling gassy & yuk for hours after I took them. So I went back to my old stand-by, Natures Way MultiVitamins. Bo burps, no gas, no problems. I think vitamins are the kind of thing you really have to try & see.

Asacol- 8 tabs/day
Remicade infusions
Imuran- 100mgs/day

Could it be the psyllium giving you D? The stuff has a laxative effect for non-IBDers-- but maybe you're getting that, too. Another member here wrote recently that Mayo Clinic gastro told her to cut out Metamucil after she mentioned taking it as an intended stool bulker. / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC ...

Before I found Forvia, I experimented with several multi-vitamins. Some I could tolerate and others I couldn't. I think the key is finding the one that makes you feel good both overall and Uc wise. Btw, Forvia is designed for IBD'ers. It's higher in folic acid, iron, calcium and a few others that I can't remember. Since starting Forvia, I feel so much better then taking One a Day which is what I was on before.

I am taking One A Day now along with Folic Acid... how much Folic Acid is in the Forvia vitamin? Maybe I will switch... I have been taking the One A Day for about 2 years now.
