hey there, this is the 3rd or 4th time now that i have knoticed after taking multi vitamins for aprox 2 weeks that i feel weird, different.
is there a possibility that i am getting to much of a certain vitamin in the multi vitamins i am taking? things seem like in a dream like state, things seem different, like im not really here.
i remember thinking this last time i tried taking multi vitamins, and it seems EVERYtime that i do, about into 1-2 weeks of taking them i start seeming like im having derealization effects.
i thought the last couple of times when i took the multi vitamins that perhaps that this was just a coinsidence, but the 4th time now???
any input would be great. thanks Francis

you should probably ask your doctor. it hasn't raised any red flags with my shrink. i don't think they worry too much about multi vitamins. imho you probably don't need it though. i mostly only take the multivitamins now when my throat is sore and i think i'm getting a cold!!

thanks for the reply Daisysmom, you said "it hasn't raised any red flags with my shrink", does that mean you have felt like this from them also? thanks

You could also ask a Pharmacist.  They really are a great resource.  Hope you get an answer soon.

sorry, what i meant was that you know every time you go to a doctor, even a dentist, they want you to list every darned little pill you take. i don't think "they" worry about multivitamins, but maybe if you are taking large quantities of frog oil or whatever the latest trend is. no, the multivitamins don't make me feel sick. I just hate it when i end up getting a cold or something after i've been taking them. then i feel like they didn't work!!

Hi fdmcall,

Multi-vitamins are regulated so you don't get too much of vitamins that cause toxicity however it is possible to be over sensitive to one particular vitamin. I can't take multis with iron because I get extremely sick. Fortunately my iron levels are always okay in my bloodwork so no need. You may be getting enough in your food source where you don't have to take a multi-vitamin, something you may want to talk to your doc about. No use taking something that you don't need if it makes you feel bad. ;)

Hi mk,

Unfortunately the vitamins won't do much good at preventing a cold if you only take them when you start getting symptoms. The germs have already invaded your body and the sore throat is usually the sign that your body is healing. To be effective, you have to take them regularly as they have to build up in your system. Vitamin C is a good vitamin to regulate your immunity however you have to be careful how much you take due to toxicity. You may want to talk to your doc about it.

Take Care everyone

My GP has recommended certain vitamins to me and they've actually made me worse, one lot giving me tremors and all the withdrawal feelings.

I take a multi B, B12 and celery and have found these ok for me. When I got the multi B the chemist was really good and pointed out one lot that actually had herbs in it as well and she said they'd react with your meds so steer clear of them.

I guess vitamins are like any meds it's all trial and error.
