Take this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day.
Make sure the multivitamin product contains the essential minerals, calcium, magnesium, potassium and zinc apart from the regular vitamin range. In addition, a good Multivitamin will also have a combination of botanicals such as lycopene (tomato extract), Lutein (Marigold extract), citrus bioflavonoids, proanthocyanidins (grape seed extract) and polyphenols (green tea extract).
Constipation, diarrhea, or upset stomach may occur. These effects are usually temporary and may disappear as your body adjusts to this medication. If any of these effects persist or worsen, contact your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
If your doctor has prescribed a Multivitamin, remember that he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.
