What’s the best way to take vitamins that doesn’t in-still the need to throw up after? I get that it’s probably the flavour, so does anyone know of any non intrusive vitamins?

      I take all my vitamins in fruit-flavored gummies! Makes them much more enjoyable to take than just downing a bunch of pills.

      If it's the iron that's upsetting your stomach, look for slow release iron, sometimes called Slow FE. It's gentler on your stomach.

      My fave vitamins are always soft gels, can’t taste them and they don’t dissolve as fast as pills or capsules

      I use gummies, even for the stuff that makes me nauseous as a side effect and not from taste like iron gummies end up being much easier on your stomach. They make multi vitamin gummies for adults and quite a few different vitamin types as prenatal vitamins. I also have peach D3 gummies that are great. They also make vitamin jello which is fun!

      I use strawberry kids ones. I find they are softer for my stomach. If you have a health shop like Holland and barret ask in there as they are good with info

      1. Are you taking a multivitamin? Many contain iron and iron on an empty stomach can cause the vomiting sense. I learned the hard way in my 20s. 2. If your meds don't require to be taken on an empty stomach, try eating two bites then taking your meds. This has helped me. 3.Some just taste plain nasty, so I will swap between a soda or juice and a glass of water. (2 sips soda, first pill, 1 of soda, water, water, soda, water, soda, second pill, soda, water, water, water, soda, etc.) Usually I do this about 2:1 and it at least gets the meds IN me. For ones on empty stomach and only water, how do you like it best? Hot, warm, room temp, ice cold? I can only do ice cold and keep a bottle in the fridge just for that.

      My D3 is a small capsule. My calcium is a gummy as is my magnesium. They actually taste pretty good.

      I get my D3 & B2 in prescriptions from my doctor & they work good. They have no taste & are pretty small

      Could try gummy bear vitamins or grind it to add into food or mix it into a milkshake or orange juice

      For vitamins d3 and b12, I use drops. For b vitamins, you can fund drink mixes online if you wanted but you're probably better off with the pill.

      I would also recommend capsules, but the smallest ones you can get ahold of for whatever vitamins you're taking & as much water as you can stomach. The more water, the easier they'll not only go down, but dissolve/digest. Saltines or applesauce are also great options
