I just foiund it on line. Forvia.com I would much rather get it at a store. For those who take it, There are chewable and pills, would the chewable be better? That way they would for sure dissolve?

It is only available through their website. Their shipping is very fast. Their customer service is great.

I have used both the pills and the chewables. I use the chewables when I'm tired of swallowing pills - they dissolve better than other chewables I have used. I have never seen the pills come out whole.

I take the pills and have been for...I don't know at least a year, maybe more. You can only buy them from the website and they seem to be very quick with the shipping and so it's not really necessary to be able to get them at the store.

I think they're pretty good. They have an orange flavor. Doesn't seem to be as bitter as some chewables.

Hi Kelina, I heard it is a special vitamin made for people with Ulcerative Colitis. I will look into it in the future. I just purchased a huge bottle of Centrum, so I will wait until that is gone. Google it and check it out. Bellski

Forvia is designed for people with IBD. It has a higher mgs of calcium, vit D and Iron. It says on the bottle that you can take 2 a day but I found that I can only tolerate 1 a day. 2 gives me gas for some reason. I have been on it for a long time and to me, ordering online is very much worth it. I have tried so many other multivitamins and then I tried Forvia. It just made me feel 100% all around.
