Default Ip multivitamin vs one a day?

Is there a reason (other than obviously they want you to buy all their products) that you can't take a one a day multivitamin instead of the ip multivitamins at 2/day? I couldn't see a difference on the labels...other than that the one a day has more vitamins and higher levels of about everything than the ip.

There is nothing magic about the IP brand if the ingredients match up. IP capsules didn't agree with me. Now I take liquid vitamins, Reviva brand that I get online from Costco.

Well good! I had just bought a bottle of one anday vitamins and didn't want them to go to waste if I was going to have to wait to take them until I was on maintenance!

I just use one-a-day as well. To be honest you just pee out most of the vitamins from IP. Not to mention they are $30/bottle (ouch!) and don't contain any iron.
