Before i don't take my vitamins everyday. i don't really like taking medicines or vitamins. im afraid to get choke with tablets or capsules. but the everytime i get colds, i take my vitamins 3 times a day. actually its overdosage, but what i do is i drink lots of water and make sure i pee regularly.... i just take the regular vitamins, Ascorbic Acid, the generic one. coz everytime i take the branded ones, i get drowsy. what vitamins do you take everyday? are you the kind of person who take different kind of pills a day?

Hi, friend, what I want to tell you is you eat vitamins 3 times everyday is harmful to your body. I have read one book which is talk about the vitamins, it is said a man eats vitamins everyday for a long time, one day, he catches cold, but all kinds of antibiotic is useless, and at the end, the man die. The reason is he eats vitamins everyday. Vitamin is a kind of antibiotic, if you eat them often, it will be useless to the virus in your body. So maybe you should take an advice from the doctor. I think that's more safe.

thanks for the concern. i only take 3 vitamins when i get cold. i dont take 3 vitamins regularly. i know that its too much, but when you excrete it in your pee its ok... actually colds is a viral disease it is self limiting disease. so you have to make your body strong and healthy so that the virus won't live in your body...

i only take medicines if i am illness. i don't even take any vitamins except 2 days before my major exams in school to active my mind but after the exams no vitamins anymore. i am not sickly that is why i am not after on vitamins but if ever i will have to take vitamins it should be herbal not the synthetic one because it will trigger you other illnesses to other parts of your body.

I used to not take any kind of vitamins either but now I am taking them at least one time per day. I do not eat very healthy food and I need to replenish my body of the vitamins it is missing. I take vitamin B and C and I also take a multivitamin too.
