Default vitamins and stomach aches?

i just started taking a mulitvitamin this week and within 10 minutes each day, i get a stomach ache. i always take it after eating, because i know it's terrible to take on an empty stomach. is this something that is normal and will go away or should i stop taking them? the last time i took vitamins daily was when i was a kid...flinstone's never made me sick

I have the same problem. All vitamins make me nauseous. Now, I use powdered supplements instead, and have no bad side effects.

I used to have this problem too with women's one a day, and when I asked my doctor she said if a vitamin is making a stomach upset then thats your body saying it doesn't want something in that vitamin (some vitamin or mineral is too concentrated for you body). So I switched until I found one that didn't upset my stomach. I found a one at whole foods that works well but also they make adult chewable gummies which dont seem to upset stomachs as easily. Or you can actually take 2 flinstone vitamins if you want.
P90X : If you were able to look inside of your cells and see your "good" enzymes increasing, your energy-producing mitochondria multiplying, your cholesterol falling, your arteries clearing, your blood vessels becoming more efficient, your muscles strengthening, your bone-density improving, and all of the remarkable changes that this program triggers, it would be clear that the scale and calipers are just insufficient ways of measuring success.
