  • What multivitamins have worked for you?

    I think I should start taking a multivitamin, but the last one I tried, from VegLife, made me pee. I want to start another, and I'm trying to find one that's vegan. Has anything in general (vegan or otherwise) worked for you?

    Hi there! I'm someone who does not have very many diet sensitivites, yet many vitamins are a no, no for me - as they often trigger a flare up. The only multi-vitamins I've been able to tolerate are children's chewables, yet if I was in a flare I would not take them during that time. I know others have also been able to tolerate children's chewables. I hope you find something that works for you!

      Some ICers can tolerate children's chewable vitamins.

        Today my family doctor recommended I start taking a multivitamin since I have some symptoms he thinks are caused by a vitamin deficiency. I did talk to him about the issues with IC and vitamins (he knows a little about IC but he's open to learning from me), so he also is referring me to a nutritionist in case the vitamin route doesn't pan out. So, this is a timely issue for me!

          The bright yellow urine is an irritant to my bladder. I guess if I started to take them again I would drink about a quart of water with them and see if that helps.
