I've been taking GNC Women's Ultra Mega Active supplements on and off for 6 months. I have been keeping track and I think these pills are causing me to bleed. Some of the vitamin/mineral amounts are WELL over the RDA and I guess its messing me up or interacting w/the colozal. I'm not taking them anymore, but still need a decent multi-vitamin. Does anyone have some reccommendations on womens vitamins that won't upset the stomach and have only 100% of the RDA?
 
Thanks in advance

I am a huge fan of Forvia. It is a special vitamin for Ibd'ers and it has a higher concentration of calcium, folic acid and iron. It has to be ordered online at www.forvia.com

Forvia is great. I am one who also struggles with multi-vitamins bothering my stomach, but the Forvia hasn't bothered me at all. I've taken it for a little over a month and just ordered another 3 months worth. I noticed I felt better after a few days of taking them. I also take additional Calcium with D for osteopenia.

Will it meet my iron requirements or will I still need to take the SlowFe iron tablets?

Oral iron supplements could be causing problems. I always look for an iron-free multi-vit. Slow FE is probably a safer route, but if you're anemic, you may want to ask your doc about iron I.V. infusions to avoid gut irritation.
