I don't know about where you live, but close to me is a health food store that sells liquid vitamins. I'm sure there was an iron free formula, but I believe it said you can take it straight or mix it in something. I would probably put a dose in a small glass and then add some sort of strongish diet drink and take it like a shot. If that doesn't work, at the nursing home where my grandmother is, they take their pills, crush them and then mix them in with a very small portion of their meal -- either potatoes or applesauce. Of course, you could mix it in sugar free pudding at the end of the day for dessert or in cauli mash or maybe even some PB (if you are allowed, yet) instead of the potatoes or applesauce! Then someone told me about vitamin shots. I can't think of their name, but they are similar to that 5hr. energy. It's the liquid form of the vitamin, but pre-flavored. My suggestion really, is to look on amazon.com. You can look up liquid multi-vitamins and there are TON of different ones. And last but not least, what about chewables? Or do those contain sugars as well? Good luck and update once you make your decision. I've thought about going to liquid just because I would think your body would absorb the liquid better.
