Are any of you taking Vitamins and Calcium? I have started taking Calcium and Vitamin D but should I be taking something else?

I have never taken vitamins because they cause me to feel awful. My stomach hurts everytime I take them. The Calcium and Vit. D don't seem to mess me up.

Any advise?

I started taking vitamins after my hysterectomy. I take a one a day for 50+ (even though I am 31, but hey I have no ovaries) and I take calcium and vitamin D also. I figure I don't like milk so I need all the calcium I can get. I also had problems in the past with vitamins making me queasy. It seems like after a week of taking the one a day it doesn't do that to me anymore. I take them with food or juice though. Good luck and let us know how you are doing.

I'm taking calcium and vit D but it also has magnisium in this tablet. I hear magnesium is good for you and is absorbed with calcium better. I don't really take anything else. Sometime vit. B complex. It seems like a lot of pills to take. I have a delicate stomach so I don't take as much as I should. Kathy

mjm59 - Calcium/Vitamins??
Since all of my problems with heavy bleeding started I became anemic, so
I am taking anitoxidents, calcium, vitamin C, and a multi vitamin that you mix with water, taken on an empty stomach in the morning. Sounds like it would be bad on your stomach, but they aren't. I have a sensitive stomach also. The company that sells them has alot of information about the absorbability when taken that way and it makes sense. As long as I have to take vitamins I want them to work. I hope it's o.k. to give the name of the company here--? Market America - you can look them up online.

I'm taking calcium and vitamin D since surgery, since I don't drink milk. Also, a multivitamin with iron every morning (slightly anemic since surgery); I'll probably stop this when I hit the 3 month mark. Also, I have a strange cataract, so I took Occuvite before surgery, and continue to take it. I'm not a big fan of vitamin supplements, but recognize that the calcium/vitamin D are necessary, and Occuvite might be the only way to prevent progression of the cataract into my visual field.

I feel like a vitamin junkie!

I am taking Iron, Vit D, a Multi, B Complex, B-6, & Magnesium (at night). I was severly anemic and put on 3x the daily iron to help. Hopefully I can come off it at my next appt, if levels are good. The B Complex has really helped my energy, and magnesium helps me sleep.

Be sure and talk to your Dr before trying anything new. I have both my GYN and my FNP (who specializes in female hormones) approving of this regimine

After my hyst, I switched to a women's 50+ vitamin but, last week, I had an annual physical with a new internist. I asked about whether I should've switched and she said that her new post-hystwomen, she prefers them to take a multivitamin with iron for a year after their hyst.

My vitamin D levels were extremely low so she also put me on a high dosage of vitamin D. I did not spend much time, if any, outside. Not since about June so maybe that had an effect, too.
