Gluten Free Multivitamin

Recommended Posts

 I made a switch to a chewable multivitamin (pharmacist suggested the brand for me) a couple of weeks ago and have been sick since then.  I gave up all supplements and several foods 3 days ago to try to figure out what was going on with me - have felt better each day.  Today, I decided to start back on the vitamins and as I was about to pop it in my mouth, I saw it in teeny tiny print: contains wheat, soy, milk!  Hard lesson learned:  read all labels yourself!  Can anyone recommend a chewable multivitamin?  I switched to a gummy bear type calcium (Vitafusion?), but they are too sweet, so I don't want to try the multivitamin.  Any suggestions?

I need help with this also. (Still trying to figure out how to post to the forum..). I have become sick several times over the last two months and it was almost always meds.. Including vitamins. I also can't have soy, oats, coffee or chocolate. I NEED vitamins badly!

I personally am afraid of gummy anything. If it is sticky like gluten,, like latex, then I am not going to take it. But since you are taking that, you might want to consider putting your gummy vitamin into a small cup of hot water, let it dissolve and then drink it.

There are many other things that make food gummy other than gluten. You are totally safe to eat products like this as-is if you confirm there is no gluten or other ingredients you can't have in them.

This has happened to me too! I was taking a gummy and felt more sick each day. It doesn't say gluten-free anywhere. No idea what I was thinking when I bought it. I gave it to my husband.
